End Of Three Study Abroad Prgms Due To Fewer Entry

3 Abroad Programmes Looses Its Debut
We are usually aware of that, a few professors take their trips for the University's Study Abroad programmes, where these programmes offers wide range of opportunities for students not just to earn but also to experience them the whole.

 

But, Unsuccessfully this year a few programmes seem to have an end, Yes! Three study abroad programmes have been put to an end/ stopped due to fewer intakes.

The Spanish language trip to Valencia, Spain, along with History and Political Science in Scotland and Ireland and Sociology in Cuba were all cut. The most popular of the three was the trip to Spain. The Spain program costs about $3,800 and was supposed to be led by Dr. Lucia Harrison, Spanish professor and department head of languages and communication, on June 28 through July 21.

Although there are several different scholarships and financial aid programs that can help each student raise enough money to go, some of the money still comes out of pocket.

The coordinating universities in the other countries set a minimum amount of students for the trips and if those requirements are not met, then the program must be terminated. Spain had a minimum enrollment requirement of 20 people, while Cuba had a minimum of 15.

"We were nowhere near those minimums, so it wasn't even like we would be able to negotiate with them to say, well we are at thirteen, because we were nowhere near," said Neuerberg. The students enrolled in the programs had the option of switching over to another program that fit their interests. Those who did not were refunded. "I believe the students were disappointed," he added.

Although three programs were cut, there are still nine other programs going abroad. The deadline for Summer 2013 Study Abroad has already passed, but students may still plan ahead for future programs.
