What is the Visiting Students Program or VSP?
The Visiting Student Program is offered to all interested international students and currently only offered in the Fall Semester. VSP participants pay tuition and fees directly to the University of Cincinnati and can choose from one of five subject areas. UC operates on a semester calendar. There are 15 weeks in one semester, beginning in late August and ending in December. VSP program participants typically earn 3 semester credits or the equivalent of 6 ECTS credits, or roughly 12 credits in the UK and Australian systems.
Students who are interested should meet with their home university’s international office to explore the possibility of applying for this program. We require all students to be nominated by their home institution via email to firstname.lastname@example.org at least one month prior to the application deadline. Partners should include the student’s legal name, email address, home institution, year of study (i.e. 2nd, 3rd, 4th), and subject of interest (i.e. Engineering, Business) when nominating students. The Fall Semester application deadline is April 15th.
Note: UC will only accept electronic copies of the application and supporting documents in Adobe PDF format. All documents should be submitted to email@example.com.
