It's important to have a clear financial plan when you're considering study abroad. There are hundreds of study abroad programs available to UB students. The program fee depends on the type of program, the program duration, and the location of the program abroad.
Given these factors, there is not a simple answer to "How much does it cost?". That is why all programs have an itemized budget sheet to show what is included in the program fee, as well as estimates for additional expenses for which students will need to budget.
In addition to the many scholarships offered by the Office of International Education, students are strongly encouraged to meet with their Financial Aid advisor to discuss other funding resources.
Depending on the type of program a student chooses, the program fee will likely include the following things:
Itemized program budgets are available for all UB and SUNY programs.
• Amount of financial aid available to students depends on the cost of the program
• Budgets may be increased by completing a Budget increase request form through the Office of Financial Aid along with supporting documentation (cost sheet)
• Only loan eligibility may be affected
We strongly encourage students to visit the Office of Financial Aid to learn more about how financial aid might be applied when studying abroad.
