Hello from UCR Education Abroad!

We hope that you are enjoying your stay abroad! Please keep in mind your safety, priorities, and responsibilities while abroad. Check this page for updates and announcements that may affect you.

When You Arrive

Call home

Buy a cheap international phone card and let everyone know that you're okay. ISIC also provides a calling card service. Check here for more details.

Check in with the faculty in charge of the trip

Let the faculty member know that you have arrived and check for any crucial updates.

Be aware of culture shock

It's not unusual to feel tired, anxious or apprehensive when you're in a new place. Talk to your new friends, call home or write to us.

Be safety conscious in the first few weeks

Tourists are often vulnerable targets; do not allow yourself to be a victim. Be careful, especially as you get used to your new environment and culture.

While Abroad

Keep in touch

Make sure the Education Abroad office has your overseas contact information. Check R’Mail regularly. This will be the official way that UCR corresponds with you.

Save your documentation

Keep all records from your classes, including e-mails, letters, notes, syllabi and tests. If you have academic questions while you’re abroad, contact your UCR advisor or department for help. This will help to prevent any errors in the reporting of your grades.
