Meet with a Study Abroad Adviser

You are here

Advisers can help you identify goals for your study abroad experience and guide you through thoughtful program selection. Advisers can also clarify the application process, credit transfer, and financial aid, as well as provide pertinent pre-departure information. Advisers remain available to you before, during, and after your study abroad experience.

We're Here for You

The Yale Study Abroad physical office space will remain closed during the fall 2020 semester, and Drop-In Hours have been suspended until further notice. We are committed to supporting you virtually. Advising appointments and events will continue to be available and conducted via Zoom. We look forward to connecting with you!

See our Study Abroad COVID-19 Updates page for more information on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on study abroad and related resources. 

Schedule an Advising Meeting

Appointments are scheduled for 30 minutes. While each adviser specializes in specific locations, it is okay to schedule a meeting with any adviser if you have not yet identified where you would like to go. For more information about the advisers, visit Get to Know Our Staff.

Before meeting with an adviser, we encourage you to review Choosing a Program and attend an information session.
