1) It is not an ‘add on.’ All credit goes toward graduation requirements.
2) It’s a great way to have an international experience with an internship or research
(for credit), complete your language requirement, enhance your
major/minor, and/or take elective courses not available at UIC.
3) If you want a UIC faculty-led program with only UIC students, there are
several programs this summer, ranging from Italian Language and the Arts to Clinical Psychology Internships in Paris.
4) Our goal for you is to ‘get someone else to pay for it’…last year over $250,000 in scholarships and grant funding went to UIC Study Abroad students.
