VCU Student to Study on Fulbright in the U.K.!

Congratulations to VCU student Sara Mason, who will be participating in this summer’s US-UK Fulbright Summer Institute!
The US-UK Fulbright Commission offers three Special Summer Programs for US citizens to come to the UK. These summer programs provide the opportunity for US undergraduates (aged over 18), who have completed no more than two years of university study, to come to the UK on a four, five or six week academic and cultural summer program.
Participants in these programs will get the opportunity to experience an exciting academic program at a highly regarded UK University, explore the culture, heritage and history of the UK and develop their academic ability by improving presentation, research and communication skills.

Pre Departure Meeting for Students to Study Abroad!

If you are a VCU student who will be studying abroad in the fall, full-year or if you are studying abroad on a non-VCU summer program, you must attend our pre-departure orientation program that will take place this year on Wednesday, May 5 at 2 p.m. in Hibbs 262 & 264. Mark your calendars now!
Please note that if you are studying abroad on a faculty-led summer study abroad program, you must attend the pre-departure orientation for that specific program, and not this orientation.
The Pre-Departure Orientation is MANDATORY. We will be discussing issues such as traveling, entry requirements, culture shock, academics and more. It will also be a great way for you to get in touch with other students who are studying abroad (possibly in the same location as you!).
Please note that even though you may not have been accepted into your program at this point, you should still plan on attending this orientation!
If you have a conflict that will prevent you from attending, you must contact your advisor to arrange a time to meet individually. Education Abroad Advisor contact information can be found here.
We can’t wait to see you there!
