The University of Glasgow School of Veterinary Medicine (UoG) has established FEEPASS (Facilitated Early Entry Program for Animal Science Students) between the Department of Animal Sciences and the UoG School of Veterinary Medicine. After three years of study at The Ohio State University (OSU), Animal Sciences students accepted into this program will enroll in year 1 of the 5-year BVMS program at the UoG, while continuing as candidates for the B.S. degree at OSU. At the end of the Education Abroad period of study (i.e. year 1 at the UoG), students are eligible for completion of the B.S. degree through OSU. The intended learning outcomes for the year of study at the UoG include the integration of the structure and function of animal systems, foundational knowledge of health disease, and application of scientific principles to real world scenarios.
Students will enroll at the University of Glasgow in the year 1 curriculum of the College of Veterinary Medicine, while simultaneously enrolling in 15 credit hours of Animal Sciences 4797 at The Ohio State University. These credits will transfer back to OSU as Animal Sciences 3170, 3270 and 3191 as well as Animal Sciences elective credit. Care should be taken to meet with your advisor as well as the Animal Sciences Education Abroad contact (Dr. Kelly George) to ensure that the correct courses have been taken to prepare for the program. Generally, students should follow the Animal Sciences major Biosciences specialization 3-year curriculum plan. Dr. Kelly George is the formal contact regarding preparation to be eligible for this program.
Only students enrolled as OSU Animal Science majors Biosciences specialization may participate in this program. Refer to the curriculum sheet outlining 3-year plan as to how students will fulfill their degree requirements. Students should maintain at least a 3.2 cumulative GPA to be recommended for the program to the University of Glasgow. An interview with the University of Glasgow will be required and may take place outside the state of Ohio.
Students may not graduate during the same term in which they are participating on a third party provider/direct enroll program.
Passports are required for every Ohio State education abroad program. For many destinations, passport information is required to apply for an entry visa early as 6 months prior to departure. For information about how to apply for a passport, go to travel.state.gov.
Students will pay the University of Glasgow's program fee and GeoBlue International insurance fee. A waiver of tuition for Ohio State students that participate on university-approved third party provider or direct enroll programming is in effect until June 30, 2019.
Students participating in the FEEPASS do so as fee-paying students. OSU students are responsible for the payment of UoG tuition and all required fees (tuition is fixed at entry and the 2017/2018 tuition was roughly $38,528, depending on currency conversion rates). All accommodation expenses, travel expenses, applicable medical expenses, food, textbooks, clothing, personal expenses, costs for passports, visas, visa extensions, or residency permits, and all other debts and incidental expenses incurred during the course of or for the purpose of their study at UoG is not included in tuition. Fee arrangements will be managed directly with the student through UoG registry.
If a student withdraws or becomes ineligible any time 11 days after the acceptance notification, they will be held responsible for a cancellation fee. Please refer to OIA's Cancellation Policy.
Students who receive or are eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant are encouraged to apply for the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program. This program is Gilman eligible. Interested students should first verify their existing award package and make an appointment with Student Financial Aid as needed. After researching the scholarship, students wishing to apply for the Gilman International Scholarship should be in touch with the listed education abroad coordinator to begin working on a competitive application.
