While abroad, you will be staying in popular and centrally-located European hotels with the exception of your three nights in London, where you will be housed in the hospitality facilities of Regent's University London.
The program fee does not include airfare or tuition.
The BBE program will make available a Group Flight Option for participants to secure airplane tickets at a discounted rate. Participants may opt for the group flight arrangements or make their air travel plans independently. Each paricipant will need to make sure they have made arrangements flying to and from Europe by either the Group Flight Option or their own flight plans.
Please note: The program faculty may or may not be traveling on the Group Flight Option.
Students are allowed to arrive in Europe before the program begins, or stay later after the program ends. This choice is up to each individual, and these plans must be disclosed to the BBE staff.
For Participants making their flight plans independently, please note the following:
- The first day of the BBE program is June 1, 2015. Participants must arrive in Prague on this date.
- The last day of the BBE program is July 6, 2015. Participants may plan their own travel after this date.
The Group Flight Option will depart from Dallas or Houston (details will be confirmed when flight arrangements are made).
Transportation from Prague to Vienna, Salzburg, Munich, Milan, Interlaken, Geneva, Paris, Caen and London will be provided as a part of the program fee. Additionally, transportation to and from all planned excursions and company visits will also be provided.
In most cities, students will also receive public transportation passes (by bus or underground metro) as part of the program fee to help navigate the city. Taxi cabs or other forms of private ground transportation used by the students during free time will not be covered by the program. However, most all areas of the cities will be reachable by public transportation.
Preparing For the Trip
Acquiring A Passport
If you need to obtain a passport, go to http://travel.state.gov/ for more information. We suggest you obtain your passport at the earliest possible time after submitting your application. It can take 4 months or more to receive your passport.
Trip Cancellation Policy
Baylor's Study Abroad Office policy on program cancellations is guided primarily by the U.S. Department of State's travel advisories for U.S. citizens worldwide. If the Department of State issues a "Travel Warning" for a particular country or region of the world, the Study Abroad Office cancels programs to that destination.
If we have students in the affected countries, we require them to leave their program and the affected area immediately. If the Study Abroad Office cancels a program, we try to facilitate the students' return to the home campus in whatever way possible.
