Pre-Departure Orientations

UMD and Affiliate program participants are required to attend an in-person orientation. 

  • The first half is spent discussing general study abroad matters (registration, health & safety issues, culture, etc.) 
  • The second half is program-specific. You’ll meet peers going abroad, speak with alumni from your program (when available), and discuss logistics to make your experience a success.
