1. Who must complete the Education Abroad at UK application process?
All UK students participating in an education abroad program must apply and be approved by Education Abroad at UK. In addition, participants in UK Exchange, UK Consortia, UK Direct and UK Partner programs may be required to submit additional application materials to the host institution or provider organization. Deadlines vary by program and are listed on the Education Abroad program pages.
2. How does someone know if more than one program application needs to be submitted?
Participants in UK Exchange, UK Consortia, UK Direct and UK Partner programs may be required to submit additional application materials to the host institution or provider organization. The application requirements for each program will be listed on the Education Abroad program pages. Deadlines vary by program and your Education Abroad advisor can help you submit your application.
3. What is an ISIC and how can they be purchased?
ISIC stands for International Student Identification Card and can be used by students overseas to obtain student discounts on items such as transportation, dining, museums, and airfare. Most U.S. student I.D cards are not accepted overseas. For this reason the ISIC can be helpful. To purchase an ISIC, please visit the Wildcat ID Center.
4. Visas are necessary for some education abroad programs. How can a visa be obtained?
A great place to get basic information about visa requirements is the website of a program's host country's embassy. Students should also speak with their Education Abroad Advisor about how to get your visa and the type of information needed for the visa application. One option to assist students with obtaining a visa is the use of a visa processing service, such as A Briggs. More information about visas and visa processing services is here.
