A South African Study Permit is required of all students who study in South Africa.  After being accepted to the program, students will meet as a group with Eleanor Emerson from the Trinity College Office of Study Away (OSA) and will be provided with more information about what is needed to obtain a Study Permit.  Provided that students get all required information together by the required deadline, The Trinity College Office of Study Away will submit the visa applications on behalf of the students.  If the student is already abroad, they will have to get the visa themselves in that country.

Students can also refer to the South African Consulate Website for a list of requirements

Students who are citizens of a country other than the U.S. should let Eleanor Emerson in the OSA know right away since there will be a different visa process that may take longer and require addition documentation.
