Orientation ProgramAll students participating in Olin semester programs are required to enroll and participate in pre-departure and post-departure coursework. INTL 300A Planning for International Learning is a 0.5 credit mini-B course designed to prepare students for their experience overseas the semester before they actually travel. INTL 300B Applying International Experiences is a 0.5 required mini-A post-departure class that will discuss what students learned while abroad and help students articulate those lessons for employers, graduate schools, etc. Both of these classes will meet approximately 3 times during the semester before and after the study abroad experiences.

HOUSING AND MEALS
If you don't have your passport, you should start this process once you submit your application.
It is required by the Hong Kong Immigration Department that overseas students must obtain a proper Student Visa to study in Hong Kong. Students without the right of abode in Hong Kong or without a valid student visa will not be permitted to study there. The process of securing will be outlined in the student's admission letter.
Overseas Programs will enroll all WU-approved study abroad students in a basic accident and sickness plan through HTH Worldwide, a leading provider of international health insurance. This plan should be seen as supplemental to the student’s existing domestic health coverage, not as a replacement. We do not recommend a reduction or suspension of existing domestic coverage in light of enrollment in HTH insurance. For more information, click here.
