Program Details

Academic Calendar

For this program, academic calendars will vary, as each university creates its own calendar. In general, the academic year will consist of 9 to 10 months, generally overlapping with the UO academic calendar. Most European universities use a semester calendar, with two cycles of teaching and exams each year. For specific academic dates, please visit the website of the host university. (Links to host university websites may be found under “Academics” in this brochure.)


Participants live in housing arranged by the specific host university, most often in student residence halls (generally, in single rooms on floors populated by diverse groups of international and host national students).  Participants will pay for their housing directly to the local housing authority or university, depending on the site selected. Please note that UO Study Abroad Programs staff members are not responsible for coordinating application for or assignment of housing; participants will work directly with the host university once accepted.


All students on this program are enrolled in a mandatory health and accident insurance plan. A complete description of the benefits and basic provisions of the insurance policy can be found at:

When choosing a study abroad program, it can be useful to compare the cost of your program with the cost of attendance at UO. Please note that many study abroad scholarships exist, and we encourage you to consult with your program coordinator or the study abroad Scholarships GTF.

UO Financial Aid

Although most forms of UO financial aid may be applied to program costs, students should be aware that they may need to supplement their standard financial aid package.   Students using UO financial aid are encouraged to meet with a financial aid counselor in the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships.
