The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign are committed to providing high-quality advising and resources to all students. Our advising practices are grounded in the Forum Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad.
Staff approaches advising as a collaborative process in which you are responsible for being an active, reflective, and educated participant in your education abroad experience. We provide professional, inclusive guidance and resources throughout the entirety of your education abroad experience.
Step One: Visit the Advising & Resource Center
The Advising and Resource Center is temporarily closed to all walk-ins. If you have questions or need assistance, check the calendar for Zoom live chat hours or schedule a virtual appointment with a study abroad staff member. You can also get in touch by phone (217-333-6322) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Step Two: Schedule an Appointment
Once you have decided on a specific region, country, or program, schedule an appointment with a study abroad staff member for more specialized advising. They can:
- Provide in-depth knowledge about programs
- Privately address any specific questions or concerns you may have about studying abroad
- Share information and resources to navigate the process
Click on each region below to schedule an advising appointment with the appropriate Education Abroad Coordinator. Please provide a clear explanation of which program/countries you are interested in and what you hope to accomplish during the appointment. Same day appointments are not guaranteed. The following staff advise on IAGE-sponsored programs only. For advising on college-sponsored programs, visit the College Study Abroad office page.
If you cannot keep your appointment, please cancel it in your My Study Abroad account at least four hours in advance.
