Study abroad: Study Abroad Fair this week; study in Italy this fall

Study Abroad Fair
If study abroad is in your future, come to the Study Abroad Fair from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 22, in Campus Square. This is the place to get information, ask questions and find out which programs may be right for you.

Program representatives will be available for questions about specific programs. More than 30 program reps will be on hand.

Find out about St. Thomas-sponsored programs including London Business Semester and the Catholic Studies program in Rome. Staff from International Education will have information and be there to answer questions!

January Term 2008 programs will be announced. Find out what courses you can take.

Interested in work abroad? Representatives from the BUNAC Work Abroad program will be here to tell you more.

STA Travel can give you information on student travel – anywhere and for any reason.

Remember the deadline for applying to study abroad for summer, fall and year-long programs is March 15.

Planning to study in Italy in fall 2007?
Get started on your Italian visa application paperwork. You will need to have the local Honorary Italian consul sign your Italian student visa application in April. (The IEC will announce the date and time of this signing session.)

Any later applications may require a personal visit to the Italian consulate office in Chicago.

To prepare:

  • Apply for or renew your passport immediately (if you will need a new one).
  • Apply to your study-abroad program by March 15, 2007.
  • Put together visa application materials in March. (Contact a study abroad adviser for a visa application checklist.)
