After being placed in a Project Center, the Interdisciplinary and Global Studies Division (IGSD) offers a robust pre-departure orientation program, starting as soon as two terms prior to departure, in order to help you prepare for your term off-campus. A safe and successful off-campus experience does not just occur—it requires careful planning and preparation. WPI is committed to the health, safety, and security of all students who participate in our programs. Learn more.
It’s never too early to start planning for an off-campus experience. Whether you’re considering going off campus for an Interactive Qualifying Project, Major Qualifying Project, or Humanities & Arts requirement, the application process is competitive, so it is important to get started early, do the research, and closely follow all deadlines and requirements. Prepared students are better able to enjoy the challenging and rewarding experiences offered by off-campus project work.
From exploring possible off-campus opportunities at the Global Fair to prioritizing application selections to preparing for pre-departure orientations, we’ll guide you along the way.
