EducationUSA Pre-Departure Orientation for US Studies

On June 10, the EducationUSA Advising Center at the Czech Fulbright commission hosted our pre-departure orientation virtually with nine Czech students who plan to study in the USA in Fall 2020. Take a look at their destinations on this map:

The program covered visa and enrollment processes, academic and campus culture, and culture shock.

Our American intern also contributed his personal experience as a current student and Resident Advisor at a US college. As a follow-up we shared a guide for looking up important contacts at their universities and a guide to understanding the current protests against police brutality and systemic racism in the USA.

The recording of the orientation can be viewed on our YouTube channel.
