Get started on your application

Try to get your application in as early as possible!

Please make sure you read all the information on this page to avoid delays and confusion during the application process.

Programme Fees

Remember - the fees cover the time you are actually IN the USA- not just the time you spend at your Internship.
You are allowed to apply to arrive in the USA up to 30 days before your official internship start date and apply to remain in the US for up to 30 days after your internship finishes but you will need to apply for this on the application and pay for the additional time in the USA

For example, if you are have a 12 month internship, but plan to fly out the week before AND stay the max 30 days after, this will mean a 14 month programme.
