Who to Contact
- International Co-op Team
Students must be capable of existing independently in a foreign country and are expected to be sufficiently mature, responsible and resourceful. For example, they must be able to travel to and from airports independently, learn local transportation systems, arrange for accommodations and handle matters of banking and taxation.
Students are responsible for all expenses associated with their international experiences including such items as roundtrip airfare, health insurance, accommodations, local transportation and other living expenses. In some cases employers may assist with airfare and housing. Additionally, students are responsible for obtaining the appropriate visa which will allow them to work abroad. Steinbright and the Career Librarian can provide some resources for securing visas and housing.
While students are abroad, they should keep their co-op coordinators informed of any issues or problems which may arise.
