Third Year Core Abroad
Third year McIntire students:
The McIntire School of Commerce and the University College Dublin are offering third-year Commerce students an opportunity to study international business in Ireland during the spring semester of students' third year of study. The Quinn School of Business is one of the finest business schools in Europe and is housed in a beautiful new building on the main Belfield Campus three miles south of Dublin's colorful, historic center.
The curriculum is designed to provide the essentials of the courses you would have taken at McIntire during this semester, so you will not fall behind your classmates who do not study abroad. The skills you develop and the experiences you have in this program will surely be a very valuable part of your total UVA educational experience. UCD course offerings are extensive, and all Commerce students will find a good selection of courses that interest them.
During the term abroad, students must complete four UCD offerings, for 12 UVA semester hours. In addition to those four courses, Commerce students must also complete the online UVA-taught Global Strategy and Value Enhancement course, which will result in four UVA credits for COMM 3040 being awarded by McIntire faculty and counting in students' UVA GPA.Each student must complete at least two business courses to equal 9 credits from the course planning list. Those two courses, along with the COMM 3041 online course, will satisfy the spring 9 credit ICE requirements. Additional courses will satisfy appropriate Commerce School or University electives.
For more information, view our course planning information.
NOTE: UVA accepts transfer credit (no grades) for courses taken abroad; however, students must receive a grade of C or better on each course to transfer credit back to UVA.
Students must attend the McIntire information session and complete the online Education Abroad Workshop on the www.studyabroad.virginia.edu website. Students may then complete the online "UVA Commerce: Semester Abroad" application available on the ISO website.
Dublin offers a choice between on-campus dormitory housing and apartments in the private sector in the city center. Although the private apartment will probably cost about $1,000 more than a dorm over the 5-month semester, most visiting students find it is worth it to be living in the heart of one of the world's great cities. The Quinn staff will help you find an apartment, if that is your choice.
