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.

If your program requires advising and offers group advising, you are encouraged to attend the group advising session. Regardless of whether you are attending a group advising session or an individual advising appointment, it is essential that you watch the Penn Abroad 101 module prior to your appointment and come prepared with any questions you may have about the program, region, or abroad process!

  • Penn Abroad Advising Calendar
  • Penn Abroad is currently accepting advising appointments for abroad opportunities during the following time frames: 

    • Spring 2018 Applicants: March 1, 2017 through October 12, 2017
    • Fall 2018 & 2018-19 Academic Year Applicants: November 1, 2017 through February 27, 2018

    Note: The advising windows above do not represent program application deadlines. For application deadlines, please see the program brochure for your program of interest.

     Applicants must have their appointments at least 2 business days before their application deadline.

  • Group Advising
  • During group advising, you will learn more about your program or region of interest through a presentation from a Penn Abroad staff member and alongside several of your peers also interested in studying at the same location. Group advising sessions include time for individual questions from students.
