A special note to international students

Depending on your country of origin, it may be necessary for you to apply for a Student Visitor Visa before you can enter the United Kingdom for this winter’s study abroad program. You can check on the U.K. Border Agency’s website to find out if you need to apply. If you need a visa to enter the United Kingdom, UI Study Abroad will supply you with documents to support your application.

To return to the United States after the class, you will need a valid form I-20 or DS-2019 endorsed for travel abroad and an F-1 or J-1 student visa that is valid through the date that you plan to return to the United States. You can obtain a travel signature from an advisor at International Students and Scholars Services (ISSS), 1111 University Capitol Centre.

Purchasing Airline Tickets

Students are advised NOT to purchase tickets until the program's status is confirmed. In late September, students will be informed about whether there is sufficient interest to offer the trip. Directions about purchasing tickets will be shared at that time.

Scholarships/Grants

UI Study Abroad offers a limited number of need-based grants and merit-based scholarships for undergraduates.
