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 an appointment online

Not able to come in person?

Both drop-in advising and Elevate appointments are intended for meeting an advisor in person at our office. If you would like to instead have a meeting over Zoom or phone, we are more than happy to accommodate you. 

Please email study.abroad@ucalgary.ca to request a Zoom or phone meeting. In your email, you should provide your name, UCID number, and the global learning program you are interested in (if known). An advisor will respond to you within several business days or shorter to set up a meeting time. 

We look forward to meeting you soon!
