SANS - work study programme

Dear all,

How long does it usually take SANS to let you know if you have been chosen for the work/study programme? Have tried contacting them but no answer - needed to know so I can potentially book week out.

Thanks in advance

    The official time line is 4-6 weeks before the event. Having said that, I had one instance where they informed me 2 weeks before the event. Last year they claimed they reached out to me and I did not respond. Ended up being stuck with a class I did not want.

    I have not done the work study myself but on this forum several people have talked about it.

    In that thread it was anywhere from 10 days to months.

    Good luck! Hope it works out.

    Usually 3-4 weeks. All the 5 times I have gone to one.

    For what it's worth, my first year of work study was last year at SANS Orlando, and I got notice the second week in January for a March event (roughly 8 weeks).

    I applied for work study at SANS Orlando again this year but haven't heard anything yet.

    Thanks for feedback - yeh it seems to be a bit of hit and miss. Fingers crossed.
