So you're ready to apply for a short-term global experience?

Before applying, talk to an academic advisor, confirm your eligibility and create a budget to confirm you can afford to participate.

To walk you through the process, download the short-term program checklist.

To apply, follow these steps:

2. Apply for funding

When you submit a short-term global experience application, you are automatically considered for a Short-Term travel grant. There is no additional application required to apply for the travel grant. 

Some funding, specifically the OS-Help Loan, requires additional applications to be completed. Make sure you complete the relevant application prior to the published deadline in order to be considered for this funding.

Do not rely on UQ funding

There is no guarantee you will receive funding. We strongly advise you not to rely on this funding.

Decisions around funding will not be made until after many hosts will require you to pay a non-refundable deposit or full program fees, so you must be able to afford to pay program deposits and fees without this funding before applying.
