FSB Asia Winter 2023

Applications will be opening soon!

Visit South Korea and Japan on this amazing adventure over Winter term.

Arrive in Seoul, one of the most technologically savvy places on the planet, where you will find wi-fi everywhere! Day trips to cultural sites like the Namhansanseong Fortress and company visits to some of the world’s best-known brands will round out our time there before we move on to the ‘land of the rising sun’ - Japan. We arrive in the city of Osaka, and will take a day trip to Kyoto to visit a UNESCO World Heritage Site with dozens of shrines and temples. Then on to Tokyo, by train, where we will visit places like the Tokyo Fish Market (one of the busiest in the world), and again participate in interesting company visits.

  • The remaining balance must be paid by the date specified by the FSB Global Studies office.
Visa regulations are complicated, and they vary from country to country. Below are considerations as you prepare to study abroad:
  • Travel before and after a program: If you are studying in a location that requires a visa or travel permit, we advise students to avoid international travel 90 days prior to the start of the program. If you wish to add travel time before or after a program that requires a visa, we strongly recommend you consult the FSB Global Studies Office before planning your travel.
  • Applying for a passport: If you do not already have a passport, we recommend you apply for one immediately. If you are in Oxford, you can apply for a passport and purchase passport photos in 214 MacMillan Hall. 
  • Passport expiration date: Your passport must be valid for 6 months after the last date of your travel. If your passport expires within 6 months of the last day of your travel, you must apply to renew your passport immediately. If you do not comply with this regulation, you will not be permitted to enter the country. (Example: If you will be traveling from May 18th through June 10th, 2022, your passport must be valid through December 10th, 2022.)
  • Non-US passports: If you will travel with a non-US passport, please consult with the FSB Global Studies Office to learn more about the visa process. Traveling with a non-US passport may require a different process than traveling with a US passport.
