The Office of International Pro
grams offers several programs which
give UNC students the opportunity
to study in countries all over the
OIP gives students the chance to
earn credit hours or fulfill class
perspectives while studying abroad,
usually for one academic . year.
Students who want to study in other
countries during the summer can
enroll in any of the study-travel
programs provided through the
UNC Extension " and Continuing
Education office, Darryl Gless,
associate director and the study
aboard officer of OIP, said Friday.
"I think what distinguishes UNC
programs from others (those offered
by commercial organizations or
other universities) is that ours tend
to give students the best return for
their money," Gless said. "That is,
our students are fully integrated with
the university students at the schools
to which they go. So it's not a special
program set up for Americans who
study in a separate way from their
contemporaries in Europe or Asia.
"Moreover, they don't have to pay
that enormous extra fee that goes
with participating in commerical
Susan Lalik, a December gradu
ate who participated in the Junior
Abroad Program in the fall of 1983
went to Seville, Spain, because she
wanted to get away for a year.
"Mostly, I didn't learn much
about Spanish and language, but
about learning how to survive in a
different kind of culture when you're
the oddball around," Lalik said.
"I would recommend that eve
ryone make every effort to go," she
said. "However, I think the best
advice is not to hang around other
Americans because youU be around
them the rest of your life. You have
to make the effort to really go out
and meet people."
The OIP has programs in univer
sities in Europe and Asia. German
universities offer two programs
through OIP, one in Gottingen, the
other in Dusseldorf. English univer
sities also have programs at the

Several new programs are also
being introduced this year. One
offers cultural and educational
studies at Tubigen University, one
of the oldest and most distinguished
schools in Germany. Other new
programs include the University of
Nanzan in Japan, the University of
Siena in Italy, Beijing University in
China, and an exchange program
with the a university in Brazil.
OIP also oversees two programs
administered by the Department of
Romance Languages, entitled Jun
ior Programs Aboard. They include
programs in Montpellier, France
and Seville, Spain.
"It's very competitive to get into
our overseas programs," Gless said.
"For instance, British universities
want you to at least have a 3.0 GPA,
although they prefer it to be much
Gless also stresses that applicants
should have a good background in
the native language of the country
in which they intend to study,
especially if it is Japan or Germany..
"We specify four semesters of
college German, as required, but
most successful applicants have
more than that," Gless said.
The programs in England are the
most popular among students
according to Gless.
"I think that's primarily because
you don't have to depend on a
foreign language to study there," he
France and Germany are also very
popular countries for the study
Hugh Huff, associate director of
Program Planning at the Division
of Extension and Continuing Edu
cation, said, "I think the programs
are different enough that we'd like
to think of them all as popular."
Despite the threat of European
terrorism the number of applicants
has not really declined. Huff said.
