"I want to study abroad... Where do I start?"
- Attend a "Study Abroad 101" general information session. They're held every weekday during the academic term at the International House.
- Do a study abroad Self-Assessment. It will help you think about your goals for your study abroad experience.
- Start looking at programs. After your info session, stick around in the resource library and grab some DU Program Summaries or brochures to take with you. By learning a bit about what types of programs are available, you'll start to learn what your preferences are. Check out our list of Things to Consider when choosing a program.
- Attend other study abroad information sessions and events, such as the region-based advising and budgeting sessions.
- Talk to a Peer Advisor! Peer Advisors are DU students that have already studied abroad, and they're trained to show you the resources that are available to you.
- Meet with your Academic Advisor to talk about what type of studies you plan to do abroad, and when you plan to go.
- Meet with an international education advisor. By doing the above items first, you will have the information you need to have a really personalized and helpful meeting with an OIE advisor. They can help you to understand the programs that might interest you, as well as tell you what types of things you'll need to do to apply for a program and prepare for your time abroad.
- Do further research on programs that interest you. By now you'll have a good idea of what you're looking for, but further research on the details of programs will ensure that you find the program options that best fit your needs!
