Please note the following regarding the estimated out-of-pocket costs listed above:

This amount is expected to allow for entertainment and participation in cultural activities, but does not include extensive personal travel. Also included in GEO's personal expenses estimate is VU's standard estimate for maintaining health insurance in your home country in case of medical emergency.
  • Airfare costs are highly variable and influenced by a number of factors, so we recommend making your own estimates based on your personal travel plans.
