Logistics

Accomodation: Students are housed in a dormitory on campus for the first month of language study providing time to locate an apartment in the city for the year. Generally students live with other international students and do their own meal preparation in their apartments. UIB does not offer a dining service plan. Students preferring to live in the residence halls may apply.

Passport: Students will need to have a passport study in Spain. The current passport fee is $135. If you already have a valid U.S. passport, be sure to check the dates of validity – your passport must be valid six months beyond your return date.

Visa: Students will need to have a visa to study in Spain. The current visa fee is $140. The Office of International Education can assist you with this process. The visa application process will require two trips to the Chicago Consulate by the visa applicant.

Travel: Students are responsible for making their own travel arrangements to and from Spain. Depending on the starting and ending date of the term, students may have the option of traveling in Spain before or after the program.

Program Cost

To help you to prepare for your semester abroad the Office of International Education has created semester budget sheets for your reference. These budget sheets are only an estimation and actual expenses may vary depending on changes in currency exchange rates, tuition increases, airfare and personal spending habits. We suggest that you set up a personalized budget to follow for the duration of your program. To view the estimated budget sheet please click here.

We strongly encourage you to print this budget sheet, and set-up a meeting with your financial aid counselor early during the application process to discuss how you will be paying for the program. Students who are eligible for financial aid may use such aid to help pay for all of the costs outlined on the budget sheet. Give your financial aid counselor a copy of the budget sheet for your program so your financial award can be adjusted to take into account the increased costs.
