Program Description:

Program Overview

Instead of a whirlwind European tour, we plan to spend more time in just a few places, giving students an in-depth perspective of several significant areas of Europe. We will be involved in office tours of architects and designers, and participate in several hands-on workshops around the themes of wood and stone- two of the most ubiquitous construction materials in the history of architecture that are on the brink of groundbreaking changes as a result of new manufacturing technologies in Europe.
The immediate impact of the travel program is an intensive exposure to some of the most significant historic and modern works of Architecture in Europe, as well as gaining insight into some of the practical applications of emerging technologies in the realm of contemporary construction. The students’ experiences will be synthesized upon their return to the University of Cincinnati, as they apply their knowledge to a studio-based project around the theme of wood and stone construction.

The semester begins with an immersion into Vienna for 10 days, followed by short trips to Brno, Prague, and Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic. From there, we will travel to Budapest, Hungary for several days. From Budapest, we will drive to Zagreb in Croatia, and then to Split, Croatia. We will then travel to Dubrovnik and several of the Dalmatian islands, culminating in several days on the island of Brac for a stone working workshop. The students will then have four days of free travel.
We will pick up in Venice and Verona, and then head north to Zurich in Switzerland, and Bregenz, Austria where we will participate in wood workshops and office tours. We will end the tour after seeing projects throughout Switzerland at the famous Thermal Baths in Vals, Switzerland. We will then bus to Zurich to fly back to Cincinnati.

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 for more information.

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:

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.
