PAPERWORK

Enrol for the study visit to New York or London by filling out the Google form below (available end September). 

 

If you are selected for a study trip:

ENROLMENT

During a general info session about the NY-LON study visits students will get details on how the visits fit into their curriculum. The supervisors will be available to answer any questions.

The NY-LON trips are quite a success and the available spots are sold out quickly. To ensure a fair inscription procedure, you will be able to enrol during several days, not on a first-come frist-serve basis, so don't rush and fill out all fields correctly. You can enrol for either one or both trips and indicate which trip is your first choice. The computer will perform a random selection of 2 x 40 students, if possible with a 50-50 gender mix per trip. The remaining students will be added to a waiting list and contacted if anyone cancels.
