Admission to open registration programs

Entry to published study tours is open to enrolled university and college students and new graduates  from aged 18 to 28. High school programs are for students aged 14 to 18 years of age. One year of successful studies must be completed (evidence required) and recommendation from a teacher or faculty member. Consult with your academic advisors to explore home university credit options.

Participants must have a satisfactory level of English language skills if they wish to participate in adventure activities.

Study tour internship placements of your first choice cannot be guaranteed.  Long term placements must be directly or indirectly related to your major or field of studies.    Please provide a work reference if you can. This will certainly assist your chances of receiving a placement.
