How to Apply

Whether you are applying for the OJS Exchange Program, the Summer Research Program, or one of our other Summer Programs, your application must be submitted to the International Office of your home university in Ontario. Please note that each International Office sets their own university-specific application deadlines. You should check your university’s website for those dates.

That office will decide which applicant it wishes to nominate for participation in the specific program in question. Those applications will then be forwarded to the OJS Program Office in Toronto, which will determine the final list of participants. The OJS Office cannot accept applications directly from students.

Each of the OJS programs has its own specific OJS application form and requirements for supporting documentation. Please make sure that your application uses the correct form(s) and includes all the required additional material. We require a transcript, and, depending on which program you are applying to, you may need to arrange for letters of recommendation from your professors, so we recommend that you start early on the process. You will also need to do some careful research on the Jiangsu universities in order to write a convincing application.

You must also check what further application materials may be required by your home university’s International Office.
