Steps to Study Abroad


Information Sessions

Information Sessions are offered Tuesdays at 3:30 and Fridays at 11:00 during the academic year (currently via Zoom). You can also complete a Self-Paced Information Session at any time. Information Sessions are also given to each UNI 101 & 201 class. If you remember this session, you're ready for the next step!

Think About Programs

Take some time to think about what locations and types of programs might fit you best! Be sure to read through our Frequently Asked Questions and our Student & Family Resources for more information. Additionally, stay informed on programs, deadlines, and more by following us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, subscribing to our UNCWorld Newsletter, and attending events.

Research Options

Learn more about what programs are available by searching for programs or connecting with one of our Study Abroad Ambassadors to learn more about their time abroad!

Make an Appointment

Once you have an idea of what programs you are interested in, make an appointment with one of our Education Abroad Advisors! Be sure to schedule an appointment with the advisor who oversees the location(s) of interest to you.


After you've done all the above steps, you're ready to apply! Be sure to keep an eye out for emails from our office and your Education Abroad Advisor for other steps you might need to complete post-application.
