LOGO - beyond abroad

Beyond Abroad was established in 2020 in Finland by Harri Suominen and Tuomas Kauppinen, founders of Asia Exchange and Edunation. Both studied abroad in Asia in the mid-2000s, and the experience left a deep impression on both – so deep that they wanted to help others do the same.

After establishing several businesses in the education sector focusing on Asia and sending more than 8000 students abroad, they decided to leave their comfort zone and expand their operations globally. Beyond Abroad was born.

Destination Guide

We want to invite you to look and download the Beyond Abroad Destination Guide for your destination below. Inside the guide, you will find plenty of information about travel, visas, accommodation, studies and general living at your destination. We will send you the guide via e-mail as well.

Costa Rica Destination Guide

Student Visa

We recommend you contact the Costa Rican embassy in your home country for the most up-to-date information since visa regulations change frequently and often without prior notice. Applying for a visa is different from country to country, sometimes even from one official to another. Beyond Abroad recommends that students take care of the visa well before departing for the destination.

Check the latest updates about applying for visas, the required documents, as well as the opening hours of the embassy’s website or by calling the embassy directly. Embassies are open according to the public holidays of the country they represent, as well as the holiday of the country where they are located.

Many nations including European citizens are entitled to travel to Costa Rica for 90 days as a tourist without a visa. This is recommended for students studying in Costa Rica for one semester as it might take longer than 6 months to finalize the student visa procedure in Costa Rica.

Accommodation

ULACIT’s central campus does not offer traditional student residences like on-campus dorms. Students are recommended to live in one of the housing programs: Homestay or Selina Hostels. ULACIT will contact all our students and ask about accommodation choices about 1-2 months before the semester starts and provide more information about the accommodation options.

Cuba Destination Guide

Student Visa

You must contact the Embassy of Cuba in your home country for the most up-to-date information since visa regulations change frequently and often without prior notice. Applying for a visa is different from country to country, sometimes even from one official to another. We recommend that students take care of the visa well before departing for the destination.

Check the latest updates about applying for visas, the required documents, as well as the opening hours of the embassy’s website or by calling the embassy directly. Embassies are open according to the public holidays of the country they represent, as well as the holiday of the country where they are located.

The Visa for Cuba is known as the Cuba Tourist Card. To study abroad in Cuba as an international student, you will need a student visa (D-2). During the application process, you must hand in all documents required by your nearest embassy. Please reach out to your nearest embassy and request visa application instructions here.

Accommodation

Cienfuegos University does not offer on-campus accommodation or dormitories. International students look for their accommodation independently in social media and well-known holiday rental websites. You can try looking before you arrive in Cuba, but even better is to wait and look for long-term accommodation once you are in the country.

Some students choose to stay at hostels/hotels for the first week to get to know the other students/potential roommates during the orientation events. If this is your preferred approach, we recommend booking the accommodation for your first days via Agoda. However, we still recommend looking into your long-term accommodation well in advance before your flight. Remember, other students will also be looking for places to stay!
