On Tuesday, December 6th, the Global UGRAD team hosted two Google+/YouTube Live Information Sessions for incoming spring participants. These sessions are an invaluable opportunity to make virtual introductions, explain the program in greater depth, and answer any last-minute participant questions prior to January arrivals. The most common themes throughout the discussions were: tips for international travel; what to expect at your host university; course registration and academic requirements; finances and budgeting; and how to make the most of your experience in the U.S.
In total, 55 participants tuned in to meet the team and address their doubts. These sessions were also recorded on the Global UGRAD YouTube page for those who were unable to attend in real-time. You can find the broadcast here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qL-8FuBYpM
We look forward to a great upcoming semester!
