You then have until close of business on Tuesday 14th November to get your full application in to our office.   It's that simple and it will save you heaps. If you are applying online, your Scholarship entry must be submitted by the Tuesday 31st October deadline, but you have until Tuesday 14th November to send in your completed application form.

Benefits

  • Avoid interrupting your schooling. You can choose between an early or late departure in November and you’ll be back in time to resume your studies. If these departures don’t suit, talk to our staff because we can often make individual arrangements if you are prepared to pay a little extra.
  • Boost your language skills. You’ll soon be communicating freely in French, Italian, Japanese, German, Spanish, Danish, Swedish or Norwegian. What a great way boost your language skills before you sit your school exams. A big plus for your future studies.
  • You’ll attend a local school where you’ll have the opportunity to try new subjects or extend your understanding of familiar subjects. You might think you are good at maths. Try it in Japanese!
  • Spend your summer holidays in the Northern hemisphere winter. Experience a traditional European Christmas, snow (hopefully!) for the New Year in Japan, home life and indoor activities with your host family and new friends instead of the usual hot summer we so often experience.
  • Gain new skills and confidence. Pushing beyond your comfort zone is a great way to lift your horizons and gain experience. Give yourself a competitive edge in your future career or studies.
  • Extend your network of friends. There will be many prospects for future contact and travel, with places to stay and people to visit.

Most important are the long-term benefits you will gain and the wonderful memories that will stay with you after you come home.

Visas

Our Short Program students usually enter the country on a tourist visa which means there are no lengthy visa processes beforehand.
