Faculty and staff will teach an existing UK course via a UK Sponsored Embedded program. Most, if not all, of the course content is delivered on-campus during the fall and spring semester with just a small portion, less than 1 credit hour, of the course content delivered during the international travel component. The international component may occur before, during, or after the fall or spring semester.
Example A: a UK Sponsored Embedded course will be delivered on-campus with a regular meeting pattern during the spring semester with a required travel component during spring break. The on-campus course meetings and requirements will continue after the required travel component and final grades will be awarded at the end of the semester.
Example B: a UK Sponsored Embedded course will be delivered on-campus with a regular meeting pattern during the fall semester with a required travel component in December/January during the winter break. Students will receive an Incomplete “I” at the end of the fall term with a final grade awarded after the required international travel component and assignments are completed.
In addition to designing the curriculum, faculty and staff teaching UK Sponsored Embedded programs will have a great deal of input over the programmatic design and student enrollment, i.e. the program location, duration, term offered, itinerary activities, decisions to accept or decline student participation, etc.
Faculty and staff teaching UK Sponsored Embedded Programs will work with their respective departmental staff to build the course(s) in the myUK system. Students will register themselves via myUK and will earn UK credit hours and GPA points. All academic regulations, protocols and requirements regarding syllabi, grading, curricular approvals, etc. will apply. The budget and expenses for UK Sponsored Embedded programs will be facilitated via UK Education Abroad. Likewise, program fees for UK Sponsored Embedded programs will be billed via the UK Student Billing Account. The participants on UK Sponsored Embedded programs will predominately be current UK students and UK faculty and staff will be the primary person responsible for the promotion and recruitment of student to the program.
