- Schedule an Advising Appointment
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!
