Overview

The Dublin Study Program will explore innovation in risk management & insurance in Dublin Ireland. Innovation (InsurTech) is critically important in today's insurance environment in order to improve operations and provide greater value to the client. 

Registration Information

The Office of Education Abroad (OEA) operates as part of Academic Affairs. Academic Affairs requires that all student groups traveling under the auspices of the university (with or without a UNC Charlotte faculty or staff member accompanying the group) be registered with the Office of Education Abroad (OEA).
 
The OEA will communicate directly with participants regarding your registration and next steps via your UNC Charlotte email, so be sure to check your inbox (and spam folder!) frequently for updates.

Registration Fee

Students participating in a non-credit or registration program through the Office of Education Abroad are charged a registration fee to cover the costs of international health and insurance and support services from the Office of Education Abroad.  
  • Up to 30 days: $50
  • 31-60 days: $100
  • 61-90 days: $150
In some cases, the registration fee may be covered by the participant’s academic department. All fees must be paid in full in order to be registered in the international insurance, and all participants must be registered in the insurance prior to departure. The OEA will communicate the appropriate fee to the participating students.

Making Payments

All payments should be made online directly via the OEA application portal. Please refer to the OEA portal for instructions on making payments. If you need assistance in submitting a payment, please contact the Office of Education Abroad.

Travel Insurance

The Office of Education Abroad highly recommends the purchase of travel insurance (also known as cancellation insurance) should personal or global circumstances prevent your participation in the program.

Passports and Immigration Requirements

All participants are individually responsible for ensuring that they have the appropriate documentation to obtain entry clearance to their host country. Additional information about passports and immigration requirements is available on the OEA website.

Passports

All participants must have a valid passport to travel internationally. For instructions on how to obtain a passport, U.S. citizens should visit the U.S. Department of State’s websitePassport applications are also processed on the main UNC Charlotte campus at Union Station.

Please consult the “Entry/Exit Requirements” section of the Department of State’s Country Specific Information website for your destination country to determine if you will need to renew your passport and to familiarize yourself with what else will be required of you to enter the country. The OEA does not process passport applications and is not authorized to advise on immigration policies and procedures.

Health and Safety

The safety of our students and faculty traveling abroad is of the utmost importance to the Office of Education Abroad and UNC Charlotte. Current events are monitored constantly, and OEA is in direct contact with students and on-site constituencies in the event of an international emergency. The OEA will work with UNC Charlotte risk managers, on-site staff, the U.S. Department of State, and our international insurance provider to determine the best course of action to keep students safe in the event of an emergency abroad.

The OEA enrolls all participants in a mandatory international health insurance, which covers a range of medical issues, support services, and emergency evacuations. We also advise that student’s take the responsibility to do their own research in preparation for international travel. We want students and their families to feel comfortable with travel plans prior to departure. Helpful resources include:

Registration Process

The Office of Education Abroad will add participants to the online registration portal. Once you are added to the system, you will be prompted to complete a series of tasks including reading and signing documents and completing information forms. These tasks should only take a moment to complete.

Reviewing and Signing Documents

During each phase of the registration process, students will be asked to review and electronically sign various agreements and policy understandings. Signatures on these documents are considered legally binding and signals that the registrant has read, understood, and agreed to the outlined policies. If you do not read these documents before signing, you are still held responsible for your understanding and adherence to the policies they outline. Beyond this responsibility, it is within your best interest to review all materials carefully – these documents answer many questions that students have about the registration process.

Contact Information

The Office of Education Abroad

The Office of Education Abroad works with students and faculty prior to departure to manage the registration process, collect program materials, communicate with students, and provide preparation resources prior to study abroad. The OEA staff can answer questions about the registration process, general program logistics, required registration materials, making payments, and general travel resources and logistics.
