Are you an international student new to the American academic system? Do you find some academic practices difficult to understand? Do you want to translate your previous knowledge, skills and experiences into success in the American university? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this academic and personal orientation is a great opportunity for you to learn more about the academic culture here in the U.S., including classroom practices, research, technology, teaching, and the support systems at UofL. A panel of international and domestic graduate students will share their experiences transitioning to graduate studies in the U.S. university system.
