Getting Started > Info Sessions
OIE info sessions & walk-in advising will resume Winter Quarter 2014 and run from Jan 6th - 29th.
See below for details. All info sessions and advising are held at the International House (unless otherwise indicated below). Please check in at the front desk when you arrive.
Study Abroad 101
The first step in beginning your study abroad application process is to attend Study Abroad 101 with a Study Abroad Peer Advisor. During the 45-minute session, you will become familiar with all of your options, including programs, locations, language requirements, and more. After the SA101 Session, you can begin researching programs and meet with an international education advisor. You will also at that time be enrolled in the Study Abroad: "Getting Started Guide" in Blackboard, which will further assist you in intentionally selecting program options and applying for study abroad.
Study Abroad 101 attendance is required for all undergraduates before meeting with an OIE advisor.
Regional Advising Sessions
The number of options available for English and Spanish-speaking countries can be overwhelming. These 45-minute advising sessions are designed to give a brief overview of DU programs in the region to help you find the best fit. If there is a Regional Advising Session offered for the region that you're interested in, you are required to attend the session prior to meeting individually with an OIE advisor. Please note, you must attend a Study Abroad 101 session prior to regional sessions.
How To Apply
If you've already attended a Study Abroad 101, but are still unsure or have questions about the application process, we encourage you to attend a How to Apply session. We will walk you through the DU nomination process and answer any questions you may have to help ensure that your application is complete and ready to go for the January 30th deadline.
