They all enroll in at least 12 credit hours, including the British Studies course, an interdisciplinary six-credit course that traces the development of British identity throughout history and the role of Britain in the modern world. This course includes lectures, seminars, and three course-related field trips.

The Base Program Price includes tuition, fees, and room & board. This amount is billed directly to Texas Woman's University and applied to a student's TWU bill. Thus, TWU financial aid will automatically be assessed to this charge, and students will pay any remaining balance directly with TWU's Office of the Bursar, just as they would if they were taking coursework on one of TWU's campuses.
Students are responsible for additional expenses not included within the Base Program Price. This includes elements such as round-trip international airfare, books & supplies, independent travel, and personal expenses. TWU Education Abroad can help you estimate these additional expenses.
