Each semester, we have mandatory pre-departure orientations. These sessions cover important information including health and safety abroad, credit transfer, cultural adjustment, and more.
Your study abroad coordinator will be contacting you with your country/region/program-specific pre-departure session time. These smaller sessions focus on logistics, health, safety and academics that are specific to your study abroad destination. Typically they are 1-2 hours long and held in late November/early December.
Read through the Pre-departure Handbook below; it has lots of helpful information! We strongly recommend you print a copy of the PDF version and take it abroad with you.
