Applications being accepted for UI summer study abroad programs

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa students can study everything from printmaking in Italy to environmental studies in Slovenia by participating in summer study abroad programs being offered through the UI Office of International Education and Services (OIES) Study Abroad Center.

Applications are still being accepted for certain study abroad programs taking place this summer. Programs still open include "Printmaking and Drawing in Venice," "London Performance Study," "Environmental Studies in Slovenia," "Historic Organ Culture in Colonial Mexico" and "Summer Program in Nigeria."

"These are excellent opportunities for students who might not be able to spend a semester or year abroad, "said Janis Perkins, UI Study Abroad Center director and OIES assistant director.

Students who think they would like to participate in one of the summer programs should call the Study Abroad Center at (319)335-0353, or visit the Study Abroad Center resource room in the UI International Center, Rm. 28.

OIES provides foreign student advising and educational and study abroad programming and works to increase the cross-cultural understanding and skills of UI students, faculty and community members. About 2,000 foreign students and scholars representing an estimated 100 countries study and work at the UI, and each year more than 400 UI students study abroad in exchanges in more than 35 countries.
