How Can We Help

We have designed this website to help students, faculty and other guests find the information they need, whether that be answers to questions about the application or visa process,how to enroll in classes; or find housing, or selecting an exciting study tour or the right place to study abroad. Faculty will find information about how to propose a study tour, how to invite a visiting scholar, as well as other resources.
