Application and Program costs 2014


Your application should consist of:

  • Cover note (in English or Spanish) describing your ideas of the internship: when, where, how long, in which area, which type of company or institution, your motivation and anything else that helps us finding an appropiate placement for you.
  • Our Application form, if possible in Spanish. Please mention especially any practical experience in your area and try to be honest about your Spanish level. If at hand, other internship reports and language course certificates. Please check our internship list and provide us with the codes of the places you are interested in. Download form
  • A Photo in low resolution

Please send these documents as a Word or PDF file to:

We will then ask you for an application deposit of 120 USD (240 USD for applicants already in Chile) (see Costs) and start arranging the appropriate placement for you.

This amount is considered part of the whole program costs and will be deducted from the balance once you accept a position and pay the program.

Once accepted the placement, we will ask you to deposit the program costs completely in advance, at least ten days before your arrival. 

If we do not offer you an internship in the desired area within 10 weeks (counting from the moment we receive the application fee), we will restore the application fee to you (deducting transfer costs). If you withdraw your application within these 10 weeks or if you do not accept an internship offer, there will be no right to refund.
