It is best to include the destinations you are interested in, so that the coordinator responsible for the region can arrange the appointment with you. Appointments are currently scheduled as phone calls or Skype conversations.

    We understand that these are difficult times, especially if you are far away from home or if your plans for the upcoming semester have been put into question.
