Fribourg

Study Abroad in Fribourg, Switzerland.  Available for two or three UA students.  This is a student exchange program.  You would continue paying your UA tuition, but you would not have to pay any tuition at the University of Fribourg for a whole year.  Keep in mind that French is the dominant language in Fribourg, but German is also spoken often.  There are, however, many courses for English students at the University, so language should not be a barrier.
