Note: The University is not currently supporting students applying to in-person programs in a country where they are not a citizen/resident.

Steps to Apply
The Short-Term Team can’t wait to assist you in finding the perfect global experience for you this Winter break.
Step 1: Register for a ‘What to know before you apply’ webinar. (incl. eligibility and Academic Approval process)
