Health and Safety
Health and safety are paramount to a successful experience studying abroad. We encourage students to research health and safety considerations of the destination in which they wish to go.

Costs and Tuition

UCCS students that have been accepted to study at Hertfordshire as an exchange student will pay tuition and fees to UCCS for the appropriate number of credits (12-15) at their normal UCCS tuition rate. Students should expect to pay the following costs in country and out-of-pocket; airfare, housing, meals, books and supplies. 

Financial Aid
Students are eligible to receive financial aid for this program as long as they maintain full-time status while abroad. Before departure students will need to receive pre-approval on all course work that they intend to take via their academic advisor or a faculty member through a study away form that can be obtained in the Global Engagement Office. Financial aid will not be released early for education abroad purposes. For specific questions regarding financial aid, students should contact the UCCS financial aid office directly.

Students are eligible to continue to receive most scholarships and grants that they would receive normally during the semester as long as there are not stipulations that students need to be on-campus. Students should confirm this with their appropriate contact for the scholarship. Students wishing to apply for scholarships for study abroad should visit our scholarship website.

Hatfield, Hertfordshire

Hatfield is located in Hertfordshire and has a population of 39,201 as of 2011. Hatfield is 20 miles (30 kilometres) north of London and is connected to the capital via
the A1(M) and direct trains to London King's Cross, Finsbury Park and Moorgate.

Social life 
The main focus for entertainment for students at the University of Hertfordshire is The Forum Hertfordshire, which hosts events most week nights for students and larger events which are open to the public.
On the College Lane campus there is a student pub called The Elehouse, and the de Havilland campus is home to Club de Havilland.
There is also a wide range of societies organised by University students through the Hertfordshire Students' Union.

There are 2 main supermarkets in Hatfield: Tesco, which is on the outskirts, and Asda in the town centre.
There are also Students' Union shops on both campuses supplying:
  • Food
  • Stationery
  • University of Hertfordshire Clothing

The town centre is small, but has a regular market and a farmers' market on the first Sunday of the month.

Hatfield is also home to an outlet mall called The Galleria located between the College Lane and de Havilland campuses. It contains a variety of shops and restaurants - many of which offer discounts to students.

Getting around
A free park and ride shuttle bus is available between the College Lane and de Havilland campuses.

The shuttle runs every 10/15 minutes during term time - from early morning until late at night after The Forum Hertfordshire closes.

The University-owned bus service Uno provides further access to a wide area.

Getting around by car is also simple with the A1M running alongside the town and the M1 and M25 only a few minutes drive away.
