Abroad Prep provides an overview of Dickinson's philosophy of education abroad and gives students the tools for selecting the best academic opportunity for their off-campus studies. Abroad Prep sessions are approximately 30-45 minutes with a study abroad advisor. You may attend a session at any time; students are encouraged to attend no later than the fall semester of their sophomore year. Summer sessions are conducted over the internet or over the phone.
