All participants in the EU Study Tour and Internship Program must first be approved by their home institutions.

Once approval is confirmed, UVic program staff will communicate detailed instructions for fee payment and registration. 

For those wishing to participate in the internship component: you must indicate on your application form whether you wish to be considered for a placement and complete the required information. The fee is $800 and must be paid in order for program staff to secure a placement on your behalf. UVic student application deadlines may be viewed here. We strive to find the best internship match for each applicant; however due to the competitive nature of the selection procedure, we cannot guarantee specific placements.

Study Tour Application and Registration:

Application to the EU Study Tour and Internship Program is a multi-step process: 

  1. Applicants seek approval to participate from their home institutions
  2. Once approved, they may complete the online application form linked below; for those interested in the internship component, a CV and cover letter in Europass format will be required at this time. 
  3. The EU Study Tour program coordinator will then communicate detailed instructions for registering as a visiting UVic student, or as a non-credit seeking student, depending on the applicant's home university and status.

UVic Students must submit an online application, including a letter of intent and CV in Europass format (see link to templates above) by April 1, 2022 to be considered for admission to the program. All UVic applicants are considered for a travel grant, funded by the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence

Students from outside UVic: Once approved by their home university, non-UVic undergraduate and graduate students must apply by April 1 via this online application

The EU Study Tour program coordinator will then communicate detailed information regarding registration in the EUS 390A or EUS 390B course and submission of program fee(s).

  • Program Fee for Optional Internship: $800 
    • program fee required before a placement can be arranged
