What is a Peer Advisor?

A Peer Advisor is a student who has previously studied abroad and who wishes to encourage other students to do the same. Peer advisors offer an engaging student’s perspective on the whole process.

A peer advisor should be the first person that prospective Education Abroad participants meet with (the Education Abroad Advisor can help with more specific details later on).

Peer advisors offer advice on selecting a program and information about funding. They also conduct classroom visits and presentations at labor meetings in other departments.

How can I become a Peer Advisor?

If you have studied abroad and are passionate about helping others to do the same, we encourage you to consider becoming a peer advisor as a secondary position. For more information, contact the Education Abroad Team at
