Program Description:
BSU Exchange with University of Worcester
 
 
What is the program about?
This program offers Ball State University students the opportunity to experience life as a British student at a truly inclusive university where each and every person counts as an individual. With a history dating back to 1946, Worcester has established a reputation for world-class teaching and practical, purposeful research.
 
 
Where does the program take place?
Worcester, England, UK
For students who want to avoid the smog and crowds of an urban center, Worcester offers the best of both worlds: a small-town feel with the sophistication of the city, and a short 2 hour train ride from London. Worcester is a great city for student life. Students make up a good proportion of the local community, so you'll find a good choice of places to hang out with friends and meet new people. It has a vibrant and varied nightlife, numerous leisure facilities, superb heritage attractions, beautiful parks and great places to eat and drink. And, with the University located so close to everything, it’s easy to get around and take it all in. There really is something for everyone.
 
Worcester is lucky to have significant and magnificent green spaces: the impressive Malvern Hills, tower above the city and Britain’s longest river, the Severn, runs right past the University. You are also within easy striking distance of some of the world's most beautiful wild landscapes, from the Wye Valley in the west and the Cotswolds in the south. Plus, the weather is fair and temperate; the nearby Vale of Evesham is famous for its pleasant fruit-growing climate.
 
 
When does this program take place?
Academic Year: September – May
Spring Semester: Mid January to Late May 
 
 
What is the program content?
Exchange students at Worcester take classes alongside British students. Worcester has a wide variety of courses to choose from in many disciplines including; Education, Social Work, English, History and Exercise Science, among others.
 
In England, "courses" are referred to as "modules," and what we call "majors" in the US are called "courses" in the UK. Don’t let it confuse you. Typically, Ball State students take four modules while abroad. You will be asked to select 4 modules and 2 alternatives.
 
 
What is the student accommodation?
You will be placed in student housing at the University of Worcester St. John’s campus. Each student will live on campus in halls of residence that provide free internet and gym membership. You will share common facilities such as kitchen, common room, and toilet/shower facilities.
 
 
What is included?
All students attending Worcester pay Ball State tuition and student fees. Tuition and fee rates are based on residency.
Round-trip airfare, accommodation, meals and living expenses are paid out of pocket by the student but can be factored into the cost of attendance sheet for financial aid purposes. Other costs include US passport and immigration documentation.
 
 
Is financial assistance available?
Students can apply for scholarships through the Rinker Center for Global Affairs. Information about these scholarships as well as the online scholarship application can be found on the Study Abroad website here.
 
In addition, students should consult with the Ball State University Financial Aid Office to determine available aid for this program.
 
 
Number of placements available?
Four
 
 
What are the eligibility requirements?
Any major
Full-time student status
Cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above at time of participation
Students must be at least sophomore status at time of participation
 
 
Is a visa required?
A Passport is required. U.S. and non-U.S. citizens need a valid passport both to enter other countries and to return to the United States. If you already have a passport, make sure it is valid until at least six months after your return date. If you must apply for or renew a passport, APPLY EARLY, since a minimum of four to six weeks is usually required for processing. During peak travel seasons, more processing time is required. Passport forms are available at many federal and state courts, probate courts, some county/municipal offices and some post offices. They can also be downloaded from the Web.
 
A visa is official permission granted by the authorities of a country where you will study or travel that allows you to enter and remain in that country for a specific purpose. The visa itself is frequently a stamp in your passport, not a separate document. You will need a passport before applying for a visa and the passport plus visa process may take several months, so start early. It is your responsibility to inquire about visa requirements for all countries you plan to visit while abroad; this includes countries that you plan to visit before or after your study abroad program. If you are not a U.S. citizen, consult the embassy or consulate of the countries you will visit to learn their document requirements. If you are a BSU international student, also visit the Rinker Center to obtain a signature on visa documents to permit re-entry to the United States. See visas for more information.
