Study Abroad

Ask a Student

Do you have questions about a program, a city, or a country you are considering? You are not alone. Talk to someone who has been there before.

Global Learning Peer Advisors

Global Learning Peer Advisors are WSU students who have studied abroad. They are trained to help you become aware of global learning opportunities at home and abroad.

Peer Advisors lead Global Cougs 101 information sessions, are available in the Global Learning Resource Room (Bryan Hall 105) to answer your questions, and via email throughout the academic year and summer. All of them are excited to help you with the study abroad application process and to share their experiences with you.

Global Learning Ambassadors

Our Global Learning Ambassadors, WSU students who have studied abroad, would love to share their experiences and insights with you about how they decided where to go, where they traveled, their specific program, and more.

You are welcome to contact more than one student ambassador. It is a good idea to get a variety of perspectives before making your decision to study abroad. Remember, the opinions and experiences of the ambassadors are personal and not necessarily those of the Office of International Programs.

Tips for making the most of your contact:

  • Research your program options and prepare some questions in advance.
  • Keep an open mind. An ambassador can give great insight into the experience of studying abroad, but your experience will not necessarily be the same.


Are you wondering what it is like to be a global learning ambassador? Contact one of them (or two or three) and ask about their experience.
