Host Centres

Each year the Education Committee makes a call for applications to get candidatures from potential host centres and prepares a list.

Travelling fellows will be enabled to choose centres by themselves, as long as the names of the fellows are known to the Education Committee at least 6 months ahead of the fellowship period.

The fellows are then asked to make a 10-top preferred list of centres among the list proposed by the Society.

All centres that are willing to accept travelling fellows are invited to express their willingness by applying to the Education Committee.

SECEC is always responsible for the final choice of the host centres and the fellows have no possibility to change the itinerary.

You are requested to send back the application form to: sececoffice@gmail.com
