UNK's Study Abroad Program held a Study Abroad Fair on March 16 for students interested in studying abroad. The Study Abroad program allows students to pick from over 30 different countries to visit. The program is working on recruiting students for the UNK Semester Abroad in China. "Studying abroad won't delay a student's graduation date. They can earn UNK credits at the same cost of studying at UNK and they can use their financial aid and scholarships. There is also a ton of field trips to go on while they are in China," said Ann Marie Park
UNK can work with students on finances, credits to study abroad
The newest trend going across campuses nationwide has most recently hit UNK.
No, I’m not talking about Rebecca Black’s music, or fashion week’s newest trends, but specifically student’s peaked interest in traveling abroad.
Charles J. Bicak, the Senior Vice Chancellor of academic and student affairs is the voice for students planning on going overseas.
“We believe that we have devised a way for students to pursue an academically rigorous and culturally enriching program abroad for a whole semester, at a cost comparable to studying on campus, without delaying their graduation,” Bicak said.
They are accomplishing this by having UNK General Studies courses taught at UNK by a faculty member and a flexible combination of distance education and independent study.
“By encouraging freshman and sophomores to set aside designated General Studies courses abroad during their Junior year, many students can avoid delaying graduation.
It is also possible for some juniors and seniors to participate in the program by substituting independent and distance education courses,” Bicak said.
