IFS2099Who Do the British Think They Are?

This course will examine the cultures that young Britons and Americans have produced and shared for nearly a century. The United States is the birthplace of a phenomenon produced by the consumer society, mass media and a widening generation gap. Yet, Britain has one of the most innovative and vibrant youth cultures in the world, which has come to define post-colonial British identity and has helped to make London the cultural and commercial capital of Europe. This course will examine the history, sociology, aesthetics and economics of British youth culture, from the early days of jazz and rock roll, through to Beatlemania, Punk, Hip Hop and the latest contemporary developments in EDM. How was British youth culture formed, to what extent is it different from America - and what does that tell us about larger differences between the two countries? As well as amplifying the creative relationship between music, fashion, cinema, art and design, the course will assess how underground cults become mainstream culture and how moral panics are turned into material profits. Taught through lectures, film and TV screenings and group discussion, this e-course will not only benefit students majoring in the arts and social sciences but also those in business and communications.

IFS2099Understanding Religion; Understanding People

This course will examine the cultures that young Britons and Americans have produced and shared for nearly a century. The United States is the birthplace of a phenomenon produced by the consumer society, mass media and a widening generation gap. Yet, Britain has one of the most innovative and vibrant youth cultures in the world, which has come to define post-colonial British identity and has helped to make London the cultural and commercial capital of Europe. This course will examine the history, sociology, aesthetics and economics of British youth culture, from the early days of jazz and rock roll, through to Beatlemania, Punk, Hip Hop and the latest contemporary developments in EDM. How was British youth culture formed, to what extent is it different from America - and what does that tell us about larger differences between the two countries? As well as amplifying the creative relationship between music, fashion, cinema, art and design, the course will assess how underground cults become mainstream culture and how moral panics are turned into material profits. Taught through lectures, film and TV screenings and group discussion, this e-course will not only benefit students majoring in the arts and social sciences but also those in business and communications.

IFS2099Please Please Me: Anglo-American Youth Culture

This e-course will examine the cultures that young Britons and Americans have produced and shared for nearly a century. With origins in the 1920s but first identified by advertisers and sociologists in the 1940s, the United States is the birthplace of a phenomenon produced by the consumer society, mass media and a widening generation gap. Yet, Britain has one of the most innovative and vibrant youth cultures in the world, which has come to define post-colonial British identity and has helped to make London the cultural and commercial capital of Europe. This course will examine the history, sociology, aesthetics and economics of British youth culture, from the early days of jazz and rock ‘n’ roll, through to Beatlemania, Punk, Hip Hop and the latest contemporary developments in EDM. How was British youth culture formed, to what extent is it different from America’s - and what does that tell us about larger differences between the two countries? To answer these questions, the course looks at the impact which the black and white cultures of America have had on Britain, as well as charting the influence of Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, and indigenous British folk traditions. The unique fusion created from these elements is set in the context of social change in the second half of the 20th century, primarily: class mobility, female independence, black migration, technological progress and the birth of the consumer society. As well as amplifying the creative relationship between music, fashion, cinema, art and design, the course will assess their links with business and the media, showing how underground cults become mainstream culture and how moral panics are turned into material profits. Taught through lectures, film and TV screenings and group discussion, this e-course will not only benefit students majoring in the arts and social sciences but also those in business and communications. This course will satisfy the Liberal Studies area of Social Sciences or History.

Money Matters

The biggest factor in deciding when and where to study abroad is often the financial aspect. In fact, too many students assume they cannot afford to participate, missing out on an invaluable opportunity because they are not aware of alternative methods of funding. The Financial Assistance Coordinator at International Programs (IP) is dedicated to helping students through the financial aid application process by conducting financial aid workshops on a regular basis in addition to meeting personally with each student needing assistance. Students who have received some form of financial aid throughout their collegiate careers, as well as those completely new to the process, receive expert care every step of the way. We also help concerned parents! Additionally, students are strongly encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office at their home school as early as possible. Finally, Florida State students will find additional helpful information on the FSU Financial Aid website.

Florida-Costa Rica Linkage Institute

The Florida-Costa Rica Linkage Institute, known as FLORICA, was created in 1986, authorized by the Florida Legislature in 1987, and formalized by an agreement signed by the State University System of Florida, the Florida Community College System and the Council of Rectors of Costa Rican Universities (CONARE). Since its beginning, FLORICA has been administered for Costa Rica by CONARE and on behalf of the State of Florida by The Florida State University and Valencia College, with co-directors appointed from each institution.

FLORICA has strong credibility both in Florida and Costa Rica as a stimulus and a catalyst. The Institute has interfaced broadly in Costa Rica with public and private institutions and agencies including all the public universities.

Costa Rican citizens who have applied and been accepted in a Florida public university or community college may apply for out-of-state tuition waivers through the Florida-Costa Rica Institute Non-Resident Tuition Exemption Program.

Florida-France Linkage Institute

The Florida-France Linkage Institute was created by the Legislature of the State of Florida in 1989. Over the years, the scope of activities and outreach of the Institute have grown considerably; in Florida, in France, and in the départments of the French Caribbean. The Florida-France Linkage Institute is administered by The University of South Florida in partnership with Florida State University and Miami-Dade College. The educational mission of each of these institutions lends an unusual and unique diversity to the joint co-sponsorship of the Florida-France Linkage Institute. The Florida-France Linkage Institute is supported on behalf of France by the office of the French Consulate-General in Miami.

The Florida-France Linkage Institute utilizes the resources of the State University System and the Community College System. The Institute also serves as a clearinghouse for inter-institutional and community networking to bring projects and activities to college and university campuses.

Thus, the Florida-France Linkage Institute places a high priority on its mission to serve as a facilitator for international tourism, trade, economic development, and business for the Office of Tourism, Trade and Economic Development (OTTED).

Visa Information

England

A Visa is required for US Citizens going to London, England for the following programs: First Year Abroad, and Interns. Please note any program under 6 months in length does not require a visa (except London interns). Anyone interested in taking 2 consecutive semesters (not already participating in the First Year Abroad Program) will be required to obtain a visa and will need to contact International Programs.

International Programs provides support and guidance for the visa application process. Students will be required to apply for their visa through the UK Visa and Immigration Office. All students requiring a visa will be sending their actual passport to the British Consulate for processing. Processing times take a minimum of 4 weeks. For this reason, international travel plans may be limited during the months prior to the start of the program.

Non US Citizens: It is the responsibility of the NON-US Citizen to check with their local consulate to see if a visa is required in order to study abroad in London. If a visa is required, the processing times may take longer than 4 weeks and may require additional visa support documents. Depending on the country of citizenship, an IELTs test to show proof of English proficiency may be required. The test cost about $250 and limited locations and times are available. If you are a non-US citizen, please contact Tina Brooks, an immigration officer, at IP-Visas@fsu.edu.

Full visa requirements and instructions will be provided in the “Visa Packets” linked below. Your visa packet may be in the process of being updated and may not yet be linked. All visa packets will be emailed when updated. Please take note of the following important visa requirements:

Passport Validity: Participants must hold a passport valid for at least 6 months beyond the end of the program and must contain at least 2 empty visa pages. The last three pages of the passport do not count as visa pages.

For First Year Abroad and Two Consecutive Semesters Abroad London Participants:

  • Visa Fee: London FYA and 2 consecutive semester participants will receive visa support but the nature of the application process requires students to apply on their own. Students will be required to apply through the UK Visa and Immigration Office (UKVI) and send their Passports to the British Consulate. The UKVI visa charge is approximately $500. This fee is not included in the London Program Fee. As of April 2015, the UK has implemented a health surcharge for all visitors over 6 months. Current cost is £225 (about $300). The Health Surcharge is not a medical coverage plan but an additional fee to enter the UK. All students are covered under the health insurance plan provided by International Programs.
  • Biometrics: One of the steps to receive the Visa will be to make an appointment for your biometrics screening (finger printing). Please note that the biometrics must be completed at a UK authorized facility and may require travel. A list of UK authorized Biometrics Facilities can be found on the USCIS website.
  • Support in the amount of $15,000: Proof of Financial support must be supplied in the form of original financial aid award letters, an original recent bank statement, or a notarized letter from the bank for an account either in the student’s or parents’ names. (The funds must be liquid and must be shown in financial aid or checking/savings. Retirement, stocks or bonds will not be accepted) You must show that you or your parents have held the required money for a consecutive 28-day period (finishing on the date of the closing balance) ending no more than one month before your application. More information will be supplied in the visa packet.
  • UK Arrival: You must arrive to London via an international flight in order to have your passport/visa stamped. You CANNOT ARRIVE ON A FLIGHT THAT CONNECTS IN IRELAND, as transit via Ireland will not activate your visa.

For London Intern Participants:

  • Visa Fee: London Intern participants will receive visa support but the nature of the application process requires students to apply on their own. Students will be required to apply through BUNAC and the UK Visa and Immigration Office (UKVI) and send their Passports to the British Consulate. The cost to apply and obtain entry clearance is about $1,100. In addition, given the short window from your placement to the start of the program, you will most likely need to expedite the visa. Expediting is an additional $200. Please assume you will need to expedite and budget appropriately. Visa fees are not included in the London Intern Program Fee.
  • Biometrics: One of the steps to receive the Visa will be to make an appointment for your biometrics screening (finger printing). Please note that the biometrics must be completed at a UK authorized facility and may require travel. A list of UK authorized Biometrics Facilities can be found on the USCIS website.
  • Financial Support: Proof of financial support must be supplied in the form of a recent back statement showing proof of sufficient funds, at least $2,500. This can be provided from the student or parent. More information provided in Visa Packet.
  • UK Arrival: You must arrive to London via an international flight in order to have your passport/visa stamped. You CANNOT ARRIVE ON A FLIGHT THAT CONNECTS IN IRELAND, as transit via Ireland will not activate your visa.
