Program-Specific Advising

Each of our global learning programs has a dedicated advisor who is responsible for coordinating applications and knowing all the logistics for that program.
If you have questions about a specific program, please book a meeting with the responsible advisor as they will best be able to help you.

Identify your advisor

If you have already applied or been accepted to a global learning program, this step will be easy! 

Otherwise, use the Program Finder to locate the program that you're interested in and check who the responsible advisor is. This is typically listed near the bottom of the program page.

Book a Zoom appointment

Book an appointment

Prefer to meet in-person?

For the Spring/Summer term (May through August), all in-person advising appointments are booked over email.

Please email to request an in-person appointment. In your email, you should provide your name, UCID number, and either the name of the advisor that you'd like to meet with or the name of the program/country you'd like to discuss. We will respond to you within several business days to set up a time.

You're also welcome to drop in at our office, as long as you are OK speaking to any advisor. Depending on your question, you may be directed to email or return at a later time. We cannot guarantee that every advisor will be available during drop-in hours and, as our advisors specialize in different programs, not every advisor can answer every question.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
