Meet our Interns & Peer Advisors

Meet our Study Abroad Peer Advisors!

These are UNC Charlotte students who have studied abroad and want to be a resource for students who have questions about what life is like abroad. Feel free to email our Peer Advisors directly with any questions you may have about their study abroad experience. If you do not see your country of interest, feel free to reach out to any of the Peer Advisors below. They would be happy to talk in general about studying abroad and are still a great resource!
