While abroad, you will be staying in popular and centrally-located European hotels with the exception of our time 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.
You will be notified of the directors' flight plans and are encouraged to book yourself on the same flight. Students should book their flights independently, according to the following guidelines:
- The first day of program activities is May 30, 2017. Participants must be present in Prague on this date.
- The last day of program activities is July 2, 2017. Participants may plan their own travel after this date. That is, no earlier than July 3, 2017.
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. Students must be present in Prague for the first day of the program and must not plan any independent travel until after the program has concluded in London.
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 or by walking.
Preparing For the Trip
Acquiring A Passport
If you need to obtain a passport, go to https://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.
