Study Abroad Opportunities
Thanks to IVCC's membership in ICISP (the Illinois Consortium for International Studies and Programs), students have exciting opportunities to earn college credit while studying at accredited colleges overseas! ICISP offers semester long programs at Canterbury Christ Church University in England, the International College of Seville in Spain, Carlow College in Ireland, X'ian International University in China, and at Salzburg College in Austria. Four to six week summer programs are offered in Sydney, Australia, Dijon, France, Canterbury, England, and San Jose, Costa Rica. The curriculum emphasis is on courses in art, world languages, history, humanities, literature and music with additional subject areas offered as appropriate. All courses may be used to fulfill graduation requirements or as electives for the transfer degree. For more information on these programs, click here to visit ICISP's website.
To be eligible for studying abroad a student must be at least 18 by the start of the program, have earned at least 15 college credits, passed English 1001 with at least a "B," and have at least a 2.75 GPA.
Financial aid and scholarships may be available.
Studying abroad offers students a unique opportunity to experience another culture firsthand while earning credit towards a degree. The programs are affordable, fun and educational.
