Study Abroad

The Center for Russian, East European & Eurasian Studies and Office of Study Abroad provide students with many opportunities to develop their language skills and cultural knowledge through extended study abroad programs. The University of Kansas sponsors multiple study abroad programs to fit the needs of your academic program for either the summer or academic year.

CREES strongly encourages its students to pursue study abroad while in the program. An in-country experience goes a long way toward improving language capability, general education, and subsequent job options. 

Many REES students have been successful in applying for NSEP awards for study in Bulgaria, Russia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and other countries; several others have received Kosciuszko Scholarships for study in Poland; other students have competed successfully for Fascell Fellowships which place the candidate into internships at embassies and consulates in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.

For questions about study abroad or financial aid contact the KU Office of Study Abroad, 108 Lippincott Hall, 864-5040.

Kino: Epizoda u životu berača željeza
Friday Night at the Kino presents: Epizoda u životu berača željeza (Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker) In Bosnian w/ English subtitles. Nazif barely makes ends meet as an iron picker to support his Roma family. He searches daily for scrap metal while his partner Senada tends to their home and children. After long day’s work, Nazif finds Senada laid up in pain. When they go to the doctor’s, they learn that her condition is critical, but because they have no health insurance or money for treatment, Senada is forced to return home without the crucial surgery she needs. A race against time starts in which Nazif will do everything he can to save Senada’s life. In the film that recreates an actual episode from the life of a Bosnian Roma family, the members of the family play themselves.
