Common Questions and Answers

Before reaching out to the UKEA office, be sure to review the common questions and answers below. 

I don't know where to start

Our First Steps Information Sessions are a great place to start if you have questions about Education Abroad!

In these sessions, we'll discuss everything you need to know to get started on your EA journey. E.g. how to select a program, earning credit abroad, cost, financial aid, scholarship information, and more! UK EA encourages all students starting this process to attend one of these sessions, and you must attend a First Steps session before meeting with your EA Advisor.
