Academic advisers play an integral role in the education abroad process for students. Many times students meet with an academic adviser to discuss what courses are best suited for an international experience, when is the best time to go abroad, and other questions related to education abroad. Our office provides this section of the website to equip academic advisers when advising students who are interested in education abroad.
