T4 programs 20-21

Wellesley T4 Abroad Custom Programs

These programs are offered exclusively to Wellesley students and are adaptations of pre-approved semester-long programs that align with the Wellesley Spring 2021 calendar. 

Students will be billed Wellesley College tuition for the Spring Semester plus a program fee of $4,443 (50% of Wellesley’s Spring Semester room and board fees). The program fee will cover housing, meals, and round-trip transportation to the program site (OIS will book flights through Wellesley-approved travel agent), onsite orientation, excursions and cultural activities, comprehensive health insurance, and 24/7 access to local staff for emergency assistance. Financial Aid applies. The OIS will provide students with advice and the necessary documentation to apply for visas, where applicable.

 

TO APPLY: 

  1. Complete Preliminary Application (Interest Form)
  2. Submit a Proposal to Study Away* in My Wellesley. In the drop-down menu of programs, select from the "Wellesley-in-XXX T4" program list. (If your selected programs have more than 2 courses offered, please indicate which courses you would like to take in the comments section of the Proposal.)

* Note: We have not made technical modifications to the Proposal specifically for the T4 programs, so first year students will need to use a good deal of imagination to fill out every field. (Tip: pull up the course browser from 2019-20, and identify courses that you find interesting and list those as future possible coursee. You'll need to list your GPA as 0.0 if you don't have any grades yet.)

Submitting a Preliminary Application or Proposal to Study Away does not commit you to enrolling. Once your application is accepted you will be provided with a timeline for confirmation, and this will vary by program.

DEADLINE: November 12, 2020

Programs that do not meet minimum enrollment targets by this date may be cancelled.
