Program Overview

 
A partnership between Oranim College, StandWithUs, CAMERA, and the Hillel Council of New England, the Leadership Project offers students the opportunity to experience the real Israel in all its complexity and nuance, while studying the area’s history, geography, and demography. Curricular units will include an in-depth look from multiple perspectives into critical issues in Israeli society.

This program is a direct enrollment option.  These programs are great because it keeps the cost of participating manageable, however many direct enrollment options are more independent experiences.  This means that students apply directly to the university abroad as a visiting international student for a semester or a year. Tuition and fees are dictated by the university abroad and paid directly to them.

Passports and Visas

A valid passport is essential to your international travel and study abroad. If you are planning to travel abroad, its best to apply for a passport now as processing times may vary. Please see the State Department’s passport page 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 visa information is the US Department of State’s country information page  

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 knowing and addressing the requirements for your host study abroad destination.

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