Before You Travel

Study Abroad Pre-Departure Orientation

All study abroad participants (except those on virtual programs) are required to complete the Study Abroad Pre-Departure Orientation. The orientation will provide valuable pre-departure information, resources, and checklist.  Students will find it extremely helpful to do research before going abroad; understanding a country's culture, laws, customs, politics, etc. is important. The more you know ahead of time about the country of your choice, the better prepared and more confident you will feel when you arrive.
