Northeastern University’s Program is actively hiring on-site staff for the Fall 2019 semester.

The Program is a unique, international opportunity for first-year students admitted to Northeastern University. Students study at one of our international partner institutions during the Fall semester and enter Northeastern University in the Spring. Partner universities or institutions abroad provide academic courses to the participants while on-site staff provide on-site leadership and support services.

Site staff work non-traditional hours to ensure the safety and well-being of our first-year students abroad. If this opportunity is of interest to you, please consider applying and/or referring a friend or colleague! Please note that the preferred application deadline is March 1, 2019.
