What is GlobaLinks Learning Abroad?
GlobaLinks Learning Abroad is a third-party provider that arranges study abroad programs for students. EIU has a partnership with GlobaLinks which means EIU students can participate in their study abroad programs and earn EIU credit. With each program, EIU students will pay their study abroad program fees directly to GlobaLinks Learning Abroad. Your EIU student account will only be charged for the $300 EIU study abroad administrative fee and the HTH Worldwide Insurance ($1 per day). You will not pay EIU tuition or regular fees for the term(s) you are studying abroad.
You can receive up to 6 credits for participation in GlobaLinks Learning Abroad's internship program. For detailed information about program offerings, courses, dates, and fees for each program, go to the GlobaLinks Learning Abroad web site.
