Prepare for your one-on-one appointment
Prior to booking an individual advising appointment with a GEO advisor, you should attend a Group Info Session to give you a basic understanding of the study away process at Duke. During your individual appointment, you'll be able to ask more specific questions and get customized advice for your individual needs and goals.
We also recommend reviewing the following recourses prior to your appointment:
- Study Away Program Recommendations by Area of Study
Search for programs based on your academic interests.
- Application Guides
GEO has prepared an Application Guide for each of the four types of programs available. The guide summarizes the application process and all the important documents you'll need along the way.
