Useful Information 


Local Overview
In addition to Harvard libraries and museums, the city of Boston, across the Charles River, has many cultural, historic, and scientific institutions to explore. Dance, music, and theater also flourish. The Boston Pops Orchestra gives free concerts each summer on the Esplanade along the Charles River, and there are a number of parks and trails in the city. Kendall Square in Cambridge has been called "the most innovative square mile on the planet", in reference to the high concentration of entrepreneurial start-ups and quality of innovation that have emerged there since 2010
 
Host institution
Harvard University is the oldest higher education institution in the United States and is one of the highest ranked universities in the world. It is devoted to excellence in teaching, learning and research and is famous for its influence on the world – it’s produced no less than 47 Nobel Laureates, 32 heads of state and 48 Pulitzer Prize winners.

Accommodation 
Housing in Harvard College dorms and undergraduate Houses includes a board plan and costs $5,700 for the seven-week session and $2,850 for a three-week session. Adult and visiting college students, as well as students in the Secondary School Program, have the option to live on campus in Cambridge. The Pre-College Program is a fully residential program. 

If you're interested in living on campus during your session this summer, you may submit a request for on-campus housing in online services. Complete your request as early as possible, as housing is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis to students who submit a request and meet all requirements.

How to Apply

Planning early is the best way to ensure you will get the most out of your time abroad.

It is important that you understand the requirements and structure of your course (and major/s) to ensure that you select overseas programs that can transfer back to your degree. To help understand your course structure, you should consult the Faculty Handbook published in the year in which you commenced your course (eg. if you began a Bachelor of Commerce in 2016, you should look at the Business School Undergraduate Handbook from 2016). Pre-2017 Handbooks can be found in the handbook archive.

Example application timeline

1. Select your program > 2. Apply for academic credit > 3. Complete Sydney Abroad application > 4. Apply to host university > 5. Receive academic approval & host acceptance (April/May) > 6. Apply for OS HELP (if eligible), book flights & visa > 7. Fly safe!

Receiving your academic credit approval can take up to 8 weeks – so it’s very important that you submit your application for academic credit to your faculty as soon as soon as you have selected your program of choice.






Note: The Sydney Abroad application requires that you upload a copy of your current passport and the outcome of your academic credit request. If you do not have these available to you now you can save your application and upload them later.
