The College of Communication & Information, School of Library & Information Studies,  is accepting applications for the following study abroad and internship opportunity. This program offers students the opportunity to earn credits while getting to know the culture, customs, and history of another country.

The FSU London Study Centre is pleased to offer two places in their Study Abroad and Internship Program, one with a focus on Library and Information Studies, one with a focus on Information Technology Administration.

Owing to immigration requirements, applications need to be processed as soon as possible. Thus the program has a closing date of September 24. All applicants must have a valid passport through 2012, and will be required to apply for an entry clearance visa immediately upon acceptance. This process will require submission of biometric data. FSU International Programs will provide guidance on the visa process upon acceptance.

The successful applicants will be provided with a comprehensive academic experience in which classroom learning will be complemented by a part-time work placement, six months free shared accommodation in central London, a stipend to cover essential costs, free online tuition, and the opportunity to take part in the free or subsidized F.S.U. trips to England and Europe. Students are required to take the three hour internship course LIS 5945 or 4940 in the spring and summer.  In the fall students must take an additional 3 credit course for a total of six credit hours. Undergraduates if selected may take one 3 hour campus-based course in London.  Graduate students can take an asynchronous College of Communication & Information course or DIS.  Students will work 20 hours per week in the library and spend equal amount of time on coursework. 


The program lasts for six months from January 2011-June 2011. Exact dates will be identified by the London Study Centre staff.  You must be a College of Communication & Information, School Library & Information Studies graduate student (for the library position).
