    Peer Advisers

    Peer Advisers are students who have studied abroad and have been selected and trained to take on a more active role in promoting study abroad and assisting students with their program search and application. Having been through the application process themselves, Peer Advisers can assist with general advising and provide tips for interested students on how to choose a program, petition courses for approval, and properly complete the application.  If you have not yet decided on a program or need general advising for study abroad, please visit the Peer Advisers page and feel free to contact any of them.  You will notice that all of our Peer Advisers are also Student Ambassadors (see below), so feel free to ask them about their experiences abroad!

    Student Ambassadors

    Ambassadors are returned study abroad students who volunteer to share their experiences with prospective study abroad students. While they cannot advise you on how to select a program or apply, they are great resources for you as you conduct your program research. If you would like to hear first-hand experience about a particular country or program, visit the Student Ambassadors page.
