Education Abroad Advising Now Available Virtually

Thursday, April 9, 2020

In keeping with the UMass Amherst campus policy of remote work, the International Programs Office (IPO) is currently closed for in-person business. However, Education Abroad advising services are now avilable virtually. 

Education Abroad Essentials, a mandatory information session for all students in all majors interested in all countries, is now available online. You will not be able to meet with your Education Abroad Program Advisor until you have attended. 

After you have completed Essentials, you can book a Zoom appointment with a peer advisor.

Education Abroad Advisors are available during the summer; students should email abroad[at]ipo.umass[dot]edu for more information.

IPO offers over 450 study abroad programs all over the world, in countries like New Zealand, South Africa, Thailand, Scotland, and more. We are also offering scholarships with extended deadlines for fall 2020 and beyond.
