I am english and study in the UK. I want to apply for the Disney college program, but I saw this on the website. Am I eligible for the program?

Attention international students:
To be eligible for this program, you must be currently enrolled in a college/university in the United States and possess unrestricted US work authorization

No - you're not eligible. It's not like that information is unclear...

No you can't - as that says, you need to be enrolled in a college/university in the United States, and you need unrestricted US work authorisation which you don't have.

There are international programmes available, including the Cultural Exchange Programme (a summer placement, open to university students in their second year or above) and the Cultural Representative Programme (a year-long work placement, open to anyone). More details are available on the Yummy Jobs website, who manage recruitment for Disney in the UK.

Making sure that "I study in the UK" and "you must be currently enrolled in a college/university in the United States" mean different things? Seriously?

Yeah making sure, because I know people studying in the UK who have done a exchange program for Disney.

That isn't the College Program. That is the Cultural Exchange Program (open to UK university students in second year or above only). UK recruitment for that is organised by Yummy Jobs on Disney's behalf (link in my post)

The college program also has my college in the UK listed as an option to choose.

What is your college called? Is it possible there's a college with the same name in the US?

Or did you perhaps apply to the cultural exchange thinking you were applying to the college programme?


Given that you don't have authorisation to work in the United States there's no way you'd be able to apply for the college programme.

You might be talking about the Academic Exchange Program, which has a very limited range of UK partner universities. This is similar to the US College Program (see details on the Yummy Jobs website)
  • University of Brighton
  • University of Chester
  • University of Central Lancashire
  • University of Derby (Buxton Campus)
  • Leeds Beckett University
  • Manchester Metropolitan University
  • Northumbria University
  • University of Portsmouth
  • Robert Gordon University
  • Sheffield Hallam University
  • NHTV University of Applied Sciences Breda, The Netherlands
  • Fontys Academy, Tilburg, The Netherlands
  • St Clair College, Canada

There is no way you would be able to apply for the college program without a permanent US address and proof of your right to work.

It was definitely the college program. And it had my county and college listed. Which is why I was confsued when it let me apply then I saw that message.
