Spain/Oxford Summer Study Abroad Option with Additional $1000 savings:

 This summer you can earn up to 9 credit hours toward your degree while immersing yourself in European culture and adventure for 8 weeks! Your resume will shine when employers and graduate schools see not one, but TWO study abroad programs highlighted in your experiences. In addition to the tremendous savings you are already earning by participating in either Spain or Oxford, students who attend both programs and take a total of 9 credit hours (3 in Spain and 6 in Oxford) save an ADDITIONAL $1000 off of fees.

Spain alone: $4,300 (3 credit hours, 11 travel days- June 15-25)

Oxford alone: $9,250 (6 credit hours, 41 travel days-June 24-Aug 3. Oxford classes begin June 27)

Spain/Oxford combo: $12,550 (9 credit hours, 52 travel days)

9 credit hours alone on campus without the study abroad discount and no travel= $10,350. For an additional $2,200 plus airfare you can earn those same 9 credit hours in Europe while having an amazing adventure, cultural experience, housing, food, field trips, and boosting your resume in our global economy. Students who take 6+ credit hours in the summer who are eligible for financial aid can apply for loans because they are full time with 6 credit hours.

Money Matters

  • Use air miles, coupons, or shop around for the best flight prices. Flights with 1+ stops to London Heathrow or Gatwick, or Birmingham International ranged between $1100 and $1600 for summer 2016.  
  • Budget an average of $15 - $30 per day for food/entertainment ($780 - $1170).  Students spent between $600 & $1500 for food/entertainment in 2016.  It depends on your habits- if you buy sandwiches and groceries and cook you will spend less than if you eat out often.  Weekend trips can range from low cost up to $900+ depending on where you go and what you do.
  • ATMs are available throughout the city of Oxford and the entire UK. Your bank may charge you a slight fee to use the ATM, but getting cash is fast and easy. Major credit cards are accepted in most shops. There is no need for travelers' checks.
  • 25 meals are included in program fees.  You will be responsible for remaining meals, but you do have full kitchen access for the final 3.5 weeks. Grocery stores and sandwich shops are within close walking distance of the college. A typical "sandwich deal" with a filled baguette, chips or fruit, and a drink is 3.33 GBP ($5.60).  Several nice meals are included in your housing fees.
  • Budget some money for weekend trips. You may want to book some in advance, but see the program director for suggestions. (Travel within the UK, Ireland, France, etc. is very easy and can cost as little as $300 for a full weekend if you stay in hostels.  A more average price is $700+ if you are taking a flight, long train journey, and staying in b & bs or hotels.)
