To ensure the sufficient amount of detail goes into the application please allow around 15-20 minutes for your online application.
If you spend any longer completing the form it is more than likely you will be timed out which may result in your application not going through.
Of course, please ensure you enter your friends name in the ‘Special Requirements’ box. Our UK team can then ensure that you are placed in the same accommodation and project as your friend or friends.
We will ask you the following questions in the application form. These questions require a detailed response and therefore we advise that you prepare your answers to these questions in advance to save you time when completing the online application form:
Special Requirements – If you wish to join us for more than one programme or tell us about any accommodation requirements or programme location preferences you may have, then please enter this information in the ‘Special Requirements’ box. If you wish to apply for more than one programme then you should make sure you enter the name of the programme, destination it is in, programme duration and the start date you would like to join us on.
Expectations – If you are using your programme as part of a university placement or wish to gain experience in a specific area then please let us know (in detail) about your expectations. An important part of what we do is managing expectations. We have firsthand knowledge of the projects and are in the best position to identify the reality of volunteering abroad. The more information you can give us about your expectations, the more accurately we can place you.
Motivations – In this section please tell us about what experience and/or relevant skills you have that are suitable for this programme. The more we know about you as a candidate the better.
Just as the name suggests you can use this box to advise us of anything really. Whether you’ve got any dietary requirements, accommodation requirements,
programme location preferences or wish to apply for more than one programme. If you wish to apply for multiple programmes then you should make sure you enter the name of the programme, destination it is in, programme duration and the start date you would like to join us on.
