Penn Abroad is moving temporarily!
Visit us at 3440 Market St, 3rd Floor beginning on December 20, 2017.
We will be closed December 15-19 for the move.
Are you ready to speak with a Penn Abroad staff member about your interests in adding an international experience to your Penn career? Penn Abroad offers both individual advising appointments and group advising sessions to help you learn more about the different types of global opportunities available to Penn students.
Semester and academic year study abroad programs require an advising appointment before you can open an application.
The Global Internship Program requires an advising appointment prior to the application deadline. For summer 2018, the application deadline is January 10, 2018. You are strongly encouraged to schedule an advising session ASAP, as slots do fill.
If your program requires advising and offers group advising, you are encouraged to attend the group advising session. Be sure to come prepared with any questions you may have about the program, region, or abroad process!
