Summer 2022/2023 Short-term Study Experiences

We are very pleased to announce that our global experiences will recommence on a country-by-country basis. We understand how important these opportunities are for you, and our teams have been working diligently behind the scenes to ensure these can be offered safely as we continue to monitor the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic and other global safety considerations.

Make sure to research your travel destination(s) and prepare accordingly, by reviewing all the FAQs.

6. Apply to the Host

Your application with the Internships and Global Experiences Team (IGET) is separate to your application to the host of your nominated short-term global experience. It is your responsibility to research the application process, deadlines and fees for your nominated host. If you have any questions, you can contact the host directly for further information.

IGET has no control over whether your application to the host will be approved, and approval by IGET does not guarantee approval by the host. Many short-term global experiences are competitive, popular, have limited places, and hosts usually allocate these places on a rolling basis.

Key considerations before applying to the host:

  • IGET recommends that you allow sufficient time to have your application assessed by IGET, and credit approved by your Faculty (if requested) before the host deadline.
     
  • For-credit students should wait until their credit has been assessed by their Faculty before applying to the host. If your host deadline is approaching and you will not have your full approval (including credit approval) by the deadline, you may need to submit your application to the host before your application is confirmed.
     
  • IGET does not recommend making any financial commitments to your host or toward your experience until after your application is fully approved by IGET.
     
  • If you apply directly to hosts before support for your application is confirmed by IGET, you are doing so at your own risk.
     
Apply early

Credit assessments can take 4 - 6 weeks to be completed so you should apply as early as possible.

Many hosts will require a non-refundable deposit to be paid to secure your place in the program (often paid within 10 - 30 days of notification). IGET is unable to expedite your credit assessment if your host deadline is approaching.

Students should take these timeframes into consideration when applying to participate in a short-term global experience.
