The UIC Office of International Affairs is proud to announce a new international partnership with University College Dublin (UCD), Ireland. Through this partnership, we will be able to exchange graduate-level students in the College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs with University College Dublin through the UIC Exchange Program. UCD is currently offering three UIC CUPPA graduate students the chance to take courses at UCD for spring semester 2009. In return, UIC will be hosting three UCD graduate students in CUPPA during spring semester.
UCD’s spring semester begins on the 3rd Monday in January and final exams end on the 3rd Saturday in May. Courses will be offered in the UCD School of Geography, Planning & Environmental Policy. Courses taken at UCD will be applied to participants’ UIC transcripts and grades will count toward his/her GPA.
Through the exchange program, participants need only pay their UIC tuition and fees, accommodation in Ireland, plane ticket fee, international health insurance, and food/entertainment costs. There are no additional program fees associated with the exchange program.
The deadline to apply is October 24, 2008. Please contact Kristin Kutella in the Office of International Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312-996-5455 for more information or to request an application.
