(or In-Country Orientation) – Orientation programming that is facilitated at the location of the education abroad experience, usually shortly after arrival abroad. On-site orientation usually includes presentations on the academic program housing, regional geography, health and safety, rules of conduct, and other issues of getting started and living successfully in the new culture. On-site orientation may include follow-up workshops on housing issues, cultural adjustment, career preparation, reentry, etc. In contrast to a pre-session, an on-site orientation usually does not yield academic credit.
