Tour costs cover travel costs such as airfare, shared accommodations, transfers, activities and some meals.
BCom students will receive $2,000 to off-set tour costs from the Undergraduate Program Office. Payment will be made to the Master's Programs Office on behalf of students participating.
Eligible students may also request funding through the International Activity Fund. Consideration will be based on demonstrated financial need. The deadline to apply is November 29, 2019.
**The course portion (BUEC 444) is scheduled in the Winter term and standard University of Alberta tuition and fees for a 3-credit course apply in addition to the above tour costs. All costs and funding are subject to change.
Please note, if you hold a passport other than Canadian, you may require a visa to enter Germany. Please refer to information available through the German Consulate General.
Should a travel visa be required, applications must be made in-person in Vancouver, BC which would be an additional expense. If this is the case for you, please ensure that you factor in that additional cost. We will assist with the required paperwork. You may want to opt to travel to Vancouver during the February reading week. Please direct any questions to Tiantian Yang at firstname.lastname@example.org.
