Step 1: Attend a Study Abroad Workshop

Study abroad workshop at Reves

The best way to begin exploring your program options is to attend a study abroad workshop. Workshops are held upstairs at the Reves Center in the Global Education Office (GEO), and in Swem Room 140.

No need to call ahead, just show up at one of the times listed. The workshops are usually 30 minutes and you are welcome to stay afterward and chat with the Peer Advisor who can help you begin your search for the perfect study abroad experience.

If you have additional questions you'll have a chance to sign up for an appointment with a study abroad advisor (either a Peer Advisor or a Reves staff advisor), who can help you narrow your search and answer your program specific questions. An appointment is optional - however, you must attend a 201 workshop before you can schedule an appointment with a study abroad advisor. If you have questions about study abroad opportunities, workshop times or to make an appointment with an advisor, contact [[peeradvisors]].
