Gotoco: Whats the catch? Is it fake? Is it real? Why is this free? Where can I research this programme?
Most organisations in our sector charge hefty placement fees, sometimes as high as $5000 for a summer placement. We established Gotoco in order to rebel against this model. It is very rare to find organisations operating in this way, accordingly our applicants often ask questions such as ” is it real”, “whats the catch”, “is it fake”. These are reasonable questions! Our advice is that the best way to investigate a programme like ours is to check its footprint on Google, if you look us up you will find lots of fantastic content posted over the past decade, some links are below this FAQ.
Why are we free? You can read our mission on the relevant part of this site, but in summary: We make efforts to run this free, as a social enterprise, because we think global people-to-people exchange (particularly with China) is vitally important. We also believe that having opportunities for adventures and experiences overseas is a vital part of anyone’s education, and so we are delighted to devote our time to running this. These viewpoints motivated us to commit to only ever delivering programmes that are free/funded to applicants.
