Payment Process

Cancellation Penalties

Withdrawal Date Cancellation Fees
Cancellation prior to 60 days $300
46 to 60 days prior to departure 25% of the program fee plus $300
22 to 45 days prior to departure 50% of the program fees plus $300
21 days or fewer prior to departure 100% of the program fee

This cancellation penalty policy is necessary because the booking of overseas facilities requires substantial non-refundable payments and commitments from CAPA in advance of the program start date. All notifications of withdrawal must be made in writing and sent to CAPA The Global Education Network. Students requiring CAS numbers for Tier 4 visa applications on the London program to participate in internships or service learning will include a $500 cancellation penalty for withdrawal from the program, or just the internship component between issuing of the CAS and 61 days prior to departure. Standard penalties will go into effect after that point.

Students should have access to data on their phones for the duration of the program and can access support through the CAPA Guardian app.

Programming and Activities

Most days will be filled with academic experiences organized and led by your faculty: visiting libraries, museums, lectures, and archives. However, we will also build in plenty of free time with CAPA Global Education leaders so that you can enhance your learning with cultural events such as:

  • A street art walking tour
  • Attend curry night in London’s Brick Lane
  • Watch the Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower of London
  • Witness a Victorian Amputation and the Old Amputating Theater
  • Visit Croke Park and the Gaelic Athletic Association museum
  • See the Book of Kells
  • And many more!

 

You will have the opportunity to choose from a range of activities with varying styles of presentation. This allows you to pick a session that speaks to you and your way of learning.  CAPA presents a My Global Education Calendar to all students and faculty. The events, reflective sessions, and activities listed are designed around significant academic themes such as Diversity, Social Dynamics, Globalization and Urban Environments. Participation in these activities will give you an intelligent, well rounded, and in-depth view of Dublin and London.
