Each university or seminary that has a study abroad arrangement with Westfield House will nominate a faculty or staff member to be the designated liaison person with Westfield House. The nominee becomes, de facto, the Westfield House International Studies Team (WHIST) representative for that institution. Generally the WHIST representative is a member of the institution’s theology department or study abroad office. The WHIST representative will have access to Westfield House information and is required to endorse the student’s application to Westfield House. Students who are interested in the possibility of study at Westfield House should contact their WHIST representative in the first instance.

Applicants to the Westfield House International Studies Programme should apply via the appropriate application form: Undergraduate Study Abroad (US printing) or Seminary Study Abroad (US printing). Your application must be endorsed by the participating institution’s WHIST representative before being forwarded to Westfield House.
