Do I choose what project I will join?
Yes and no. Each semester approximately six to ten projects will be available. However, the announcement of projects is only made approximately two weeks prior to departure for the field. Applicants cannot, therefore, choose their projects prior to departure from abroad.
Students will be consulted on their preferences for field placements. However, final placement is at the discretion of ACICIS staff. While all efforts are made to accommodate student preference, ACICIS risk management and pastoral care requirements are taken into account. The quota system (whereby each unit must consist of a minimum number of participants from four discipline clusters), also influences placement decisions.
