Advising in the Office of International Education
An important first step is to complete a Study Abroad Interest Sheet, available here, or the printed version available in the Office of International Education. (It will be a lot more helpful to you and us if you give us this information before the Study Abroad Fair in September.) Knowing your provisional ideas about study abroad will help us advise you. We will also add your name to our email distribution list, for notification of meetings and visits by program representatives, and other study abroad information.
Printed and electronic resources
Catalogues and brochures. OIE maintains a library of printed information published by the programs and universities attended recently by Framingham students.
You can also obtain brochures from visiting representatives at the Study Abroad Fair. Nowadays the most comprehensive and up-to-date information, including course descriptions and application forms, is usually available from program or university websites.
The OIE also makes available program evaluations written by FSU students who have returned from study abroad – an invaluable source of insight and inspiration, and a big help in selecting a program. We can give you contact information for returnees from the programs that interest you so you can ask specific questions about everything from academics to cost of living to food and social life. Programs have their own websites, to which you can link from this one. And don’t forget to speak with family, friends, and faculty members about your interests and your concerns regarding study abroad.
