University of Pennsylvania is offering students the chance to study abroad in one of the world’s most prestigious universities, but the study abroad organization said the cost is not free and the facilities and benefits are limited.
The study abroad program was announced Wednesday by the university’s Student Affairs Department, which oversees the academic programs offered to Penn students and the university as part of the universitys $3.4 billion gift to the University of Rochester.
According to the department, students who apply to study overseas are required to complete a six-week study abroad requirement that includes studying and visiting abroad for a minimum of five weeks.
The total cost of the six-month program, according to the university, is $15,500.
To be eligible for the study-abroad program, applicants must meet one of four criteria.
Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree or higher in a subject related to a university that is an accredited program of study abroad or a related accredited program at the university.
The program is available to all students who have completed an undergraduate degree or a master’s degree in a relevant subject at the University.
Applicators must be at least 21 years old.
The University of Pittsburgh has also announced plans to expand its program.
The university said in a news release that applicants can register online at https://www.students.upenn.edu/travel/cancellation-resume.pdf, complete a one-page online application form, submit payment and submit the fee, which will be sent directly to the school.
The application is due Jan. 19.
The department also said that the cost of participating in the program is $25 per student per week, and the program will run from Jan. 17 through the end of the year.
The program is open to anyone 18 years or older.
The university’s website lists a maximum number of students per university, but it also says that the number of applications it receives will fluctuate, depending on the number and type of students.
It said that it is notifying potential students about the program as soon as it is ready.
