Independent Interns and Researchers Information

In accordance with the Florida State University policy for international experiences, International Programs provides opportunities for Florida State degree-seeking students who elect to intern or conduct research abroad in locations where Florida State does not have an International Program. Independent Intern programs are designed for students who wish to register for Florida State University internship or DIS/DIR courses and receive grades for internships/research to be completed abroad.

In an effort to assist students who wish to independently intern/research abroad, International Programs provides administrative and academic support to help ensure there are no challenges with regard to receipt of credit and/or receipt of financial aid. Further, International Programs provides health and evacuation insurance, and collects contact details of the student, their emergency contact, and the foreign host institution.

For students going to the UK, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland: Visa support is highly recommended due to the intensive visa application process that is required. Additionally, please be aware that the cost to apply and obtain entry clearance is about $310 and the BUNAC program fee is $750. Students will also be required to make an appointment for biometrics screening (finger printing) in Jacksonville but DO NOT MAKE THIS APPOINTMENT AHEAD OF TIME. YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED BY BUNAC WHEN TO BEGIN YOUR ONLINE APPLICATION WITH THE UK BORDER AUTHORITY.

IF YOU ARE NOT A U.S. CITIZEN YOU MUST CALL YOUR CONSULATE BEFORE APPLYING FOR A PROGRAM.
