✨Program Spotlight✨ UAB in Wales!
UAB in Wales is our signature program here at UAB and here's why:
- Pre-Approved courses
- Housing Accommodations
- Cultural Immersion
And all of that is included in the shown price!

Wales is known for its rugged coastline, mountainous national parks, distinctive Welsh language, and Celtic culture. The country also has a unique relationship with Birmingham AL!

Previous student participants said they loved being able to walk down to the coast to admire the view, explore the UK (Especially London during the program excursion), and appreciated the kind and genuine people of Aberystwyth that made their stay memorable.

Adventure awaits you in Wales!

Deadline for Spring Applications is October 1st! That's one week away! Link to apply is here: https://educationabroad.uab.edu/index.cfm?FuseAction=Programs.ViewProgramAngular&id=40015
