Peer Advisors & Recruiters

These ASU students all studied abroad on various types of programs and are here to help you get started on a journey of your own! Our Peer Advisors are in the Study Abroad Office ready to chat with you, and you can meet our Recruiters at information tables, events or even in your classes giving presentations about study abroad. Both roles can help you understand the different types of programs offered, assist in narrowing down your program options, guide you on the application process, discuss program costs and speak about student life abroad. 

If you'd like to meet with a Peer Advisor, stop by the Study Abroad Office to talk to them, contact them via email at studyabroad@asu.edu, chat with them using our Live Chat right here on the website or call them at (480) 965-5965. No appointments are needed to speak with Peer Advisors. They are available Monday through Friday 8 am - 5 pm.

Join our Recruiters in a Study Abroad 101 session about the various program types, available scholarships, the credit process, housing options and much more. Better yet, invite them to your class or event! Find them at any international related event on any of ASU's campuses and ask them what they found to be the most advantageous about studying abroad.
