Tuesday, October 16, 2018

The International Programs Office will host its Pre-Departure Orientation on Thursday, November 29 from 7:00-9:15 p.m. in the Campus Center Auditorium.

The orientation—mandatory for all students planning to study abroad in calendar year 2019—provides a combination of practical tips and important information to help students prepare for travel. The event features stories from education abroad alums and international students, country and region-specific information, question and answer sessions, and chances to connect with other students traveling abroad. Critical health and safety material will also be covered.

If you are unable to attend due to class or work, you will be required to participate in an online makeup session. If you are no longer planning to study abroad, please be sure to log into your UMass Ed Abroad account and change your status.

If you have any questions, please contact the IPO Programming team or your Education Abroad Adviser.
