Preparing for your one-on-one meeting with a study abroad advisor

Doing some prep work ahead of time will help you get the most out of your meeting.

  • Watch this short video so you’ll be well-informed by your meeting and can spend your advising time going beyond the basics and digging deeper into areas that are important to you.
  • Have you looked at recommended programs for your major? Visit the Study Abroad & Your Major section of our website and print out a copy of your college info. sheet.
  • Have you thought about your priorities in a study abroad program? You can use the Study Abroad Blueprint to help you explore what you're looking for in a program abroad.
  • Have you talked with your academic advisor yet about study abroad? If not, send them a quick email to get the conversation started and ask about the types of courses you may want to look for in a study abroad program based on the courses you have left to fulfill.
