When do I send in my transcripts and other required documents?
After you submit your application, the Program will review your submission, and will request your transcripts and other required documents upon acceptance.
Do I need a passport to come to Peru?
Yes, but you can still start the first part of application process without one! Some programs require a copy during the second part of the application, so if you plan to study abroad, please check your country´s requirements for passport processing times. Many countries offer expedited passport processing services.
For instance, US students should visit the U.S. Department of State website to learn how to apply. It can take up to 8 weeks, so we recommend getting it expedited which can take between 2 and 3 weeks.
Do I need a visa to come to Peru?
Program applicants should check Peru´s entry requirements for their country, and notify the Program if they need visa assistance. For instance, US students will most likely not need to process their visa beforehand; tourist visas are automatically given upon entry, and allows you to stay between 90 and 183 days. If you are planning to stay for more than six months, the Program will work with you to obtain the appropriate visa for your stay.
What do program fees cover?
The program fee covers comprehensive staff assistance and program-specific costs: tuition, site visits, and project-related costs. Comprehensive staff assistance includes support related to housing, visas, and scholarships. The program fees do not cover airfare, housing, local transportation and meals outside of classes.
Can I participate in a program if I´m not a student?
Yes, but it depends on the program. The Program has received recent graduates and working professionals in various rotations. Contact the Program Manager for more details.
It is after the application deadline. Can I still apply?
Even if the deadline has passed, we’d still love to have you join us abroad if possible! Check with the Program Manager to see if there is still time to apply.
