Advising and Appointments
Students interested in studying abroad have multiple opportunities to learn about the options available to them at The University of Georgia through Options Abroad, individual advising, and walk-in advising. If you are unsure about where you'd like to study abroad or what type of program you'd like to go on, attending an Options Abroad Session would help you learn more general information about study abroad as well as help you determine what program would be best for you.
Beginning the search process for your study abroad program early is important. You need to work closely with your Academic Advisor to see where study abroad fits best into your bulletin. Start today!
OPTIONS ABROAD SESSIONS
If you are interested in studying, working, volunteering or interning abroad, we encourage you to attend an Options Abroad Session.
In these 50-minute information sessions, we explain the basics of finding a study abroad program, using the resources in our study abroad library, the process of transferring credit from an external study abroad program, financial aid and scholarships for study abroad, health and insurance, basic travel information, information on working, volunteering, or interning abroad, and SISA, the study abroad list-serve.
The sessions are held four times a week at 1324 S. Lumpkin Street, Athens, GA 30602, during the fall and spring semesters.
