Students interact with scientists and local experts from organizations such as the Lizard Island Research Station and the Wet Tropics Management Authority to gain a firsthand understanding of ongoing conservation efforts in an exceptionally diverse environment.

How to Apply

Applying for admission and general Yale credit for designated (non-Yale) study abroad programs is a simultaneous process. It is your responsibility to ensure all application materials are submitted to the Study Abroad Office, and your desired program or university, by the relevant deadlines.

  • Submit an application directly to the Study Abroad Office to be eligible to receive general Yale credit for coursework completed abroad, by the appropriate deadline. Late applications for study abroad credit cannot be accepted.
  • Apply directly to the program or university you hope to attend for admission. Program application deadlines may be earlier or later than Yale’s application deadline. Access the program application directly from their website.
  • You do not need to have already been admitted to your program when you apply for Yale credit.
