Short-term overseas study program applications

What is a short-term overseas study program and how do I apply?

Short-term overseas study programs give you a chance to study overseas in summer or winter breaks. You may receive 12.525 credits, depending on the duration of the program. Program dates fit within University breaks, however it's possible to return in Week 2 of semester with special conditions.
