The exchange program was developed to support the ever growing needs of the WACE Global Institutional Partners of finding international CWIE placements for their students.
The Program at a Glance:
- Designed as a three year pilot with an annual assessment of the program
- Open only to institutions who are a Global Institutional Partner (both Platinum and Gold levels). Currently there are 44 partners located in 19 countries
- Operated on a Multi-Lateral Basis meaning that any partner could send or receive students to any member of the program provided there are openings and the students meet the requirements of the receiving schools
- Each participating partner will have the opportunity to sign an MOU with WACE agreeing, “to the best of its ability”, to receive & send:
Year One: 2013-2014….2-4 students
Year Two: 2014-2015….4-6 students
Year Three: 2015-2016…. 6-8 students
The overall goal of the pilot is that approximately 800 students will complete an international
co-op/internship exchange over this period of time.
