The University of Louisiana at Lafayette has canceled its Study Abroad programs in Italy, England, and Costa Rica for the Summer 2020 semester.
This comes as UL Lafayette continues to monitor the ongoing situation concerning COVID-19, or coronavirus.
Students who were scheduled to travel as part of Study Abroad will receive full refunds.
The health and safety of students, faculty and staff members remains the University’s paramount concern. UL Lafayette personnel are working closely with the Louisiana Office of Public Health, and are also monitoring guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. State Department.
Summer 2020 - May 11th – 14th (Lafayette) & May 17th – May 31st (England)
The University of Louisiana at Lafayette Study Abroad in England is a three-week program that offers you the opportunity to study and earn six credit hours in one of the most exciting and cosmopolitan cities in the world. The England program begins on the UL Lafayette campus May 11th-14th where students will attend class in order to meet partial contact hours prior to travel. Group orientation meetings will be held to learn about differences in culture and customs; and practical considerations such as monetary exchange, what to wear, and what to expect while traveling.
Every course involves travel to a number of sites that may include areas throughout London such as Regents Park, the British Museum, the Houses of Parliament, Covent Gardens, The Royal Botanical Kew Gardens & Palace, and Westminster Abbey. In addition, time is spent exploring unique areas outside of the city such as the historic cities of Bath and Oxford. You’ll experience wonderful cultural activities such as West End plays, many of which surpass their Broadway counterparts, as well as other guided and unguided excursions during your stay.
No matter what courses you take, whether you study architecture and design, the visual arts or writing, your time in London is a planned educational immersion that allows you to experience daily life in London while advancing towards your university degree. Students will be in residence near the center of London in Bloomsbury, a historic area known as the intellectual center of the city. Guided strolls through neighborhoods, visits to local markets and grocers, and navigating public transit in a major metropolitan area, allow students to experience the wonders of this major international city.
The program cost is $3625, plus University fees of $230, totaling $3855. A late fee of $100 will be added to your program cost after December 5th. Program cost includes tuition for 6 credit hours, lodging, insurance, museums, entrance fees, field trips, and public transportation passes. Airline information will be provided to the group of participants, but airfare is not included in the program cost and must be purchased by the student.
* Optional round-trip airfare, which includes transportation to and from the airport, is avaliable for $1,336.
