What is Panrimo?

Panrimo is a third-party provider that arranges study abroad programs for students. EIU has a partnership with Panrimo which means EIU students can participate in a Panrimo study abroad program and earn EIU credit. With each Panrimo program, EIU students will pay their study abroad program fees directly to Panrimo. Your EIU student account will only be charged for the $300 EIU study abroad administrative fee; however, Panrimo will reimburse you for this fee. You will not pay EIU tuition or regular fees for the term(s) you are studying abroad.

Panrimo offers internship programs in Argentina, China, the Czech Republic, England, and Italy. When you participate in a Panrimo internship, you take other study abroad coursework alongside a 10-15 hour/week internship. Students of all majors can apply for Panrimo internships as Panrimo personalizes each internship to match as closely as possible with each student's goals. For detailed information about program offerings, courses, dates, and fees for each program, go to Panrimo's web site.

Panrimo’s Mission: To offer customized options for all to study and intern abroad in order to create positive global interdependence and understanding.

All Panrimo internship programs include the following:

1. Internship placement catered to student's needs
2. Overseas coordinator
3. A personal Panrimo advisor before, during and after your program
4. Panrimo orientation booklet before departure
5. Personal on-site orientation with your Panrimo overseas coordinator
6. Official transcript from the host institution

Besides this, all Panrimo fees are optional and customizable depending on each student's request. For an internship, students pay an internship placement fee, the cost of which varies based on location and duration. Panrimo can provide housing, airport reception, excursions, and cell phone, but these are not required expenses.

Foreign Entry Requirements

To enter any of the Panrimo program countries, you must have a valid passport. If you are a U.S. citizen and do not currently have a valid passport, or if your passport will expire during the time you will be overseas, please go to the U.S. State Department web site for information on how to apply for/renew your passport.

A visa is your permission to enter a particular country for a specific amount of time. To find out if you need a visa for the country you plan to study in, please visit the Foreign Entry Requirements page on the U.S. State Department's web site. You can use the Foreign Entry Requirements page to get contact information for the Embassy of the country in which you plan to study. By contacting the Embassy, you will be able to determine what you must do to enter and remain in the host country during your study abroad experience.

Travel Document Systems (TDS) can also provide you with helpful information on every country, including entry requirements, cultural information, travel conditions, economy, and more.

You are strongly encouraged to read the U.S. State Department's Consular Information Sheet on the country where you plan to study. It will provide you with a great deal of information on your host country and will help you prepare for your trip.

**Please be aware that you are responsible for obtaining the most up-to-date information on the entry requirements for the country where you plan to study. The Office of Study Abroad only provides general information, as visa regulations and procedures are constantly changing. Please consult the Consulate for the host country for more information. **
