Global Exchange Program Application

Please answer all questions as comprehensively as possible, to give your application the best chance for success.

Please include majors/specialisations where possible.

You will need to seek approval through your Student Advising Office, and return the completed Student Office Approval Form to us. Click the link to download it.

What issues or demographics have you experienced or would you like to explore? What kind of experience have you had volunteering or working in the not for profit/community sector?

e.g. If you must go in your preferred time and there is no flexibility; or if you have a close second preference in terms of host university, please state that here.

To answer questions 10—12, please research your preferred destination thoroughly. Our exchange programs are developed based on the student's interest areas, and what is available at the host institution. The activities could include an internship, completing a piece of research, organising events, undertaking units, marketing and communications for a partner organisation of the Centre, etc. If you have no preference for host institution, please use your answers to these questions to really focus on examples of the kind of experience you would like to have at whichever institution you may be selected for.

Please provide the contact details of two professional referees.

You cannot progress your application until you upload your resume. This document will be forwarded upon request (if successful) to your host institution.

If your approval form has not been completed yet, you may still submit your application. Please ensure you follow the instructions on the form to return it to us by the application deadline.
