1.     Unrestricted Electives (UE)

Depending on your respective college and school, UEs can be used with OEP. 


2.      Leave of Absence (LOA)

Students can apply for an LOA to go for OEP. For example, they can take a 6-month LOA for a 6-month professional internship, or a 1-year LOA for a 1-year internship. 

 

Study Component for China (Shanghai)

Students will enter Shanghai under the student visa and must study part-time at a partner university (a maximum of 2 modules per semester). Students may choose to map back the modules that they have taken at the partner university but must pay the school fees to both universities.

 

Other locations

Students will enter the United States, Germany, Denmark, The Netherlands, Beijing, Hangzhou, and Suzhou under the internship visa. There will not be any study component.​
