How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in WorldTeach. Due to a recent organizational decision, we are not accepting any new applications at this time. Please check back soon for further updates. 

Before beginning your application process, please select a program by going through our materials online. Some programs have specific qualifications, and we encourage you to read program profiles carefully prior to beginning your application. You will be able to apply for a first- and second-choice program. Please note that due to in-country orientation and academic calendars, our programs have fixed departure and return dates.

Throughout the application process, you will be supported by the Admissions Office here at WorldTeach. We are happy to clarify any requirements or to answer any questions you may have.

WorldTeach’s admissions process operates on a rolling admissions policy, meaning that some of our programs may fill prior to our stated application deadlines. For this reason, we encourage you to submit your materials at your earliest convenience.

ALL application materials, including your personal statement and resume (and in the case of year/semester programs, professional reference and interview), must be submitted by the application deadline.
