There are a number of requirements that you are expected to adhere to while studying abroad, which can be found below. Read these requirements over carefully, and make sure you understand and follow them. Students who do not abide by these requirements risk losing credit for their time abroad.
You will need to schedule a 30-minute meeting with a GESI staff member after you have confirmed your place in the program. This will be an opportunity to discuss steps leading-up to pre-departure and any questions generated after reviewing the pre-departure packet. An email with meeting scheduling instructions will be sent to you.
All Northwestern study abroad programs host a mandatory pre-departure orientation. You’ll be notified via email with the orientation date and details. Health, safety, and cultural adjustment will all be discussed. It will also be an opportunity to meet your other GESI teammates. *Off campus students do not need to attend.
