Academic Program and Course Information

Credit Level: U - Undergraduate
Instruction Method: Field Experience
Pre-requisites/Permissions: Department Approval

This course provides a path for a student to obtain an academic internship opportunity outside of the United States. Students will have the opportunity to learn from their field experience and cultural awareness activities completed via distance learning. The distant learning course helps students close the gap between the academic application of business concepts and their pragmatic utilization in the workplace. Furthermore the course will examine values and cultural practices, global interconnections (i.e. economic, political, ecological, and technological), worldwide concerns and conditions, origins and past patterns of worldwide affairs, and alternative future directions in worldwide affairs.

Co-op students selected to participate in this program are required to enroll in the course during the designated term, regardless of when the student may be on co-op.  If the course is during a term when the student is on co-op, tuition and fees will be charged per a student’s residency status and college, based on the part-time per credit hour rate.

Students will be registered by the Division of Experience-Based Learning and Career Education in either a co-op experience or an internship experience.  Co-op students will register and pay the co-op course registration fee of $465 for the experience. This registration permits students to maintain their full-time student status with the university.

Internship students have the option to register for 0 - 12 credit hours based on academic need. Internship students can register for 0 credit hours of $465 to maintain full time student status or register for variable credit hours (1-12 credit hours).

Passports and Visas

A valid passport is essential to your international travel and study abroad. If you are planning to travel abroad, it's best to apply for a passport now as processing times may vary. Please see http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/passports.html for more information.

The Academic Internship Council will provide country-specific visa application instructions, resources and assistance to all program participants.  

In order to obtain country-specific visa instructions and resources, refer to your host country’s embassy web page. One way to access this information is via the US Department of State’s webpage at:  https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en.html

UC International is happy to guide UC faculty, staff and students to possible resources about visas for study abroad. Although, applying for the necessary visa for travel is the responsibility of the individual UC traveler. Entry requirements change frequently, and we advise you to pay close attention to consular updates. It is your responsibility to know and address the requirements for your host study abroad destination.

Applying for a visa can be a complicated process. Some UC travelers choose a third party to assist with this process, for example Travisa or A Briggs (mention UC for a possible discount).

Health and Safety Abroad

While UC International is committed to student and faculty safety while abroad, traveling UC faculty, students and staff are the individuals making decisions overseas and therefore play a key role in their own health and safety abroad. The US Department of State, Centers for Disease Control Prevention (CDC) and International SOS are excellent resources for country specific information.

UC partners with International SOS, a company that provides medical and security advice. UC's member ID is 11BCAS000010.

UC students, faculty and staff can utilize International SOS in the following ways:
  • Sign up to receive email alerts for medical and security information, customizable to various locations abroad.
  • Read about travel health information with medical advice, food and water safety and cultural tips.
  • Explore travel security with personal safety tips and travel risk ratings for locations abroad.

UC faculty, students and staff traveling abroad should register their travel through the US Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to help the U.S. Embassy contact you in an emergency.

All UC students participating in a University of Cincinnati sanctioned or funded international travel program are required to purchase and maintain insurance while abroad. UC International partners with CISI to provide insurance for UC students.
