Pre-Departure Conference

Spring 2023 students

All accepted Spring 2023 students are required to attend the Pre-Departure Conference, which will be on Wednesday, October 26th from 5:30-9pm in the Mountains Ballroom on the 3rd floor of Talley Student Union.

Students attending in-person sessions must comply with NC State’s requirements for in-person gatherings.

At the conference, student attendees will choose between several 30-minute information sessions ranging from saving money to health & safety while abroad. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to meet with other students traveling to their region and have the opportunity to ask questions to past students who previously studied there.

Should I live with a host family while studying in Ecuador next semester? What’s the Italian student visa application process like? Who else is studying abroad in Prague with me? All these questions – and many more – are addressed at the Pre-Departure Conference.
