Pre-departure Orientation Information

Pre-departure orientation is a crucial element in preparing you for your time in Vietnam and all students are required to complete pre-departure orientation before attending the Vietnam Center. 

You will receive information via your LUC email about the online pre-departure orientation through the Sakai platform. Also, if you are a Loyola University Chicago student, you will be required to attend an in-person pre-departure orientation meeting. Details about this training will be sent to you in your acceptance materials.

Students from other universities may be asked to do an in-person orientation with their own study abroad staff and will hear from the Office for International Programs regarding any additional requirements. Other arrangements will be made to make sure that you have gotten all of the appropriate information you will need to successfully transition to Ho Chi Minh City.

At any point, however, do not hesitate to email Vietnam@LUC.edu, if you have any questions.
