2019 Program Details

An overview of the June and July programs can be found below.



Typical participants are undergraduate students who have completed a minimum of two years university prior to joining the program. Please note that students with fewer than two years university may be considered if the home institution approves it. We also welcome graduate students to participate in the program.  All classes are taught in English, so participants must be proficient in English and have a strong academic background.

Departments may set minimum and maximum enrollment limits for individual packages. The minimum enrollment is generally 20 students, though some packages may have higher minimums. Packages with low enrollment may be cancelled. Students will be informed if their first choice package is full or has been cancelled and will be given the option to choose another package. Students are advised to register as early as possible to get their first choice of package.
