Penn State Education Abroad offers periodic parent webinars for parents/guardians of students on an approved education abroad program. If your student has been accepted into a Penn State Education Abroad program, they will receive information on the parent webinar via email to pass along to you. In addition, please review information from some of our partners and colleagues:
- The Institute of International Education has published a list of the top ten study abroad tips for parents.
