Academic Program and Course Information

Students will collaborate on multimedia projects to understand the complex and changing relationship
 between the "real" London and Prague and their media 
representations past and present.


All students in this program are required to enroll in FILM 2091 001 Cinema Study Tour Europe (1-6 credits) for the spring 2019 semester.
 
The course meetings will be scheduled at a time that works for the students in the tour. We will meet 3-4 times in spring 2019 in order to prepare for the course. Because it does not meet on a regular basis, he course will not interfere with students' schedules in the spring.

Tuition and fees are assessed based on total enrolled hours for a term. This includes the hours associated with the study abroad class. Students who enroll for more than 18 hours for the term will be assessed additional per credit hour fees over and above the flat fees associated with being enrolled full-time (for most students full-time is 12-18 hours). 

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.

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.

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).
