You’ve done all the research and are ready to take the plunge. This section will provide you with all the info you need to put together your application.

Application overview

  1. Search and narrow down the three university partners that you would like to attend.
  2. Apply to Go Global with your three choices ranked in order of preference to attend.
  3. After you’re accepted to Go Global, you’ll get an email (six to eight weeks from the deadline date) that nominates you to apply directly to the university that you were matched to.

Online application

Start the application process well in advance of the application deadline, but review the eligibility criteria before starting an application. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.


  • Undergraduate students can start an online application and follow the steps through “Gateway”, our online application program. In Gateway, you’ll be asked to submit a list of supporting documents. If you’ve already started an application through Gateway, you can resume your application from where you left off at any time.
    • Applied Science students should select “-CIE” where available (i.e. University of Glasgow-CIE), otherwise select the “-UniWide” option
  • The Go Global fee ($415.00) can be paid through the Student Service Centre (SSC). The fee will not be posted until after the Go Global deadline has passed.
  • Complete and submit supporting documents (i.e. Proposed Study Plan – see Supporting Documents page) by the application deadline.

Statement of Interest (Updated for 2022 applications)

Applicants are required to write one statement of interest within the Gateway application. Students are asked to complete a short statement (approx. 450 words) to consider the following questions (there is no particular format required for the statement):

  1. Why do you want to study abroad at the three universities you selected?
  2. How might this program contribute to your personal, academic and career goals?
  3. How might this experience contribute to your understanding of global issues at a local and global level?


Applications are currently CLOSED for all programs. The Round 2 application window, for experiences commencing in Term 2 of the 2023 Winter session (i.e. January 2024), will open in mid-March, 2023.
