Program options

Study Abroad Option

The Study Abroad option allows students to transfer for one or more quarters to another campus without experiencing program interruptions or extensions. Courses and programs remain fully compatible across all campuses, however not all specializations are available at all campuses. Refer to the program schedule for further details.

Students who prefer shorter study abroad experiences can join seminar courses taught by visiting professors at any of our campuses instead, at one or more times during the program.

New York Extension Program

The New York Extension Program is operated by a local academic partner institution and is available to all graduate students who wish to complete a study abroad period of up to 12 months in downtown Manhattan. This program is available in addition to your studies at UIBS.

Private Tutoring and Private Coaching

The Private Tutoring and Private Coaching options allow students to schedule additional one-on-one sessions with professors or study coaches to catch up on missed contact hours or to receive additional academic support. Sessions are charged per hour and take place on-campus at a time that is convenient for both the student and professor or coach.

Internship Option

The Internship option encourages students to put their skills and knowledge into practice through offers received by our Careers Department from regional and international companies and organizations. No credits can be awarded for internships. Internship agreements of up to 3 months are available only for students with a national passport or residence permit and cannot be considered for a student visa extension.
