Every student needs a valid passport. If you are a US citizen and need to apply or renew your passport, please visit the US State Department's website for more information. Routine service requires 4-6 weeks. Note: your passport should be valid for at least 6 months after your planned return.

Visa for Australia

Program managers can advise students about the application process, timeline and documents required. 


Each flight is booked by the student.

For summer internships, most students book flights immediately after confirming the dates of their internship with their host.

If you need to change the dates on your ticket, there will be a change fee associated with the date change. It is best to purchase your flight after confirming your dates with your internship host. Also keep in mind that one-way tickets are not necessarily less expensive than a round-trip ticket.



MISTI provides resources and advice for housing throughout Australia. Housing options vary by location, so start looking early.
