12 weeks: Service learning in Thailand and internship in Australia
The Globetrotter is perfect for the open-minded culture-seeker looking to maximize their gap semester. Spend your twelve-week program circling the globe and experiencing radically different environments across three continents. You’ll return home with a new sense of purpose and a passport packed with stamps.
After an immersive two-week tour of Europe’s most iconic cities, you’ll move on to Thailand, where you’ll support and collaborate with local social enterprises and established NGOs. From there, you’ll close out your global gap experience with a professional internship down under in Sydney, Australia.
Gap Semester 12 Weeks
Our gap semester programs culminate with a transformative series of workshops and seminars led by experts in business and international relations. Reunite with the rest of your cohort to reflect on your gap, develop a post-gap plan for success in college and your career, and say goodbye to everyone during a gala farewell banquet and awards ceremony.
Sep. 17 - Dec. 3
Jan. 22 - Apr. 9
Tuition for this 12-week program is $20,000, and scholarships are available. Tuition includes:
Take your time in Thailand so you can soak up the succulent street food, ancient ruins, ultramodern cities, and sustainable agrarian communities.
On your gap, you’ll work with local NGOs and community members to conserve its precious natural environment, join sustainable community development efforts, and help care for elephants.
An English-speaking city of more than five-million, and an economic hub with vibrant finance, manufacturing, and technology industries—Sydney is an ideal internship destination.
While on your gap, you’ll build fundamental business skills by immersing yourself in the key activities of an international company or non-profit organization, and have plenty of free time left over to soak up Sydney’s famous culture and warm sunny weather.
