Studies Abroad: Salzburg Summer FAQ
No, since the summer programs are only 5 weeks (less than 90 days), students will not need a visa.
Summer students do not need to take German before they go or while they are there.
This is a personal preference question. The program requires that participants purchase their own food. As a result, students must budget for food. If students are more likely to go out a few times a week, they should budget for more expensive meals. If a student can cook, he or she should budget around $100 a week. Also, students should take into consideration how much shopping and outside traveling they will do. School-sponsored trips will save students money because they will not have to pay for hotels or entrance into museums, but if students travel on their own on the weekends, they should make sure to include these expenses in their budget. Students can do some research on how much train tickets, hostels, and the average restaurant would cost in the areas that they are traveling in and try to work from there.
Yes, students must purchase books at the UP bookstore before they leave for the program.
Summer programs are an excellent way to fulfill core University or college requirements. Students should check with their advisors to see what classes would best help them fulfill some of their needed requirements. Summer programs are also useful for filling upper-division elective credits.
