Will I be able to travel with friends while studying?

Certainly! Traveling is a significant part of your experience abroad. However, do keep in mind that the Umbra Institute is a study abroad program, not simply a travel abroad one. We expect students to commit to the academic program first and foremost. Day trips in the region and overnight trips to larger cities are part of several courses at the Umbra Institute and all students should restrict overnight travel to the Fridays and weekends during which there are no course obligations. Additionally, Umbra offers a week-long break around mid-semester and you can travel as you wish! If you are looking to make an extensive European trek or if you want to invite all your friends to come visit, schedule your activities during that period. Check the Visitor Guide for dates
