About Peer Study Abroad Advisors

In fall 2016, the Globalization Office launched the Go Peer Study Abroad Advisor Program in order to respond to a greater number of requests for study abroad consultations, caused by an increase in the of number of the university’s short term study abroad and exchange programs. All advisors have previously participated in exchange programs and many have also participated in short-term overseas programs.
Go Peer Study Abroad Advisors are here to help anyone who is interested in studying abroad but is unsure of where to study, has questions about how to study for the required exams, wants to know about a particular university, or even just has a simple question.

No appointment is needed, so please feel free to drop in. Shifts change every semester, so please check this page for details.

Naoki Shibamiya
College of Arts and Sciences, Cultural 
University of the Philippines
The Philippines
Hi I'm Naoki and a senior student majoring in cultural anthropology. I studied at University of the Philippines, Diliman for about ten months from 2015 to 2016 as an AIKOM exchange student. I participated in a work camp in Borneo, Malaysia and worked for handicapped people in the summer vacation of my first year in college through Hands-on Activity of UT. I also went to Vietnam to research the ODA of Japan’s government as a participant of JICA International Corporation Field Study Program for College Students in the spring vacation when I was a freshman. Although I’m curious about the diversity of human beings and study cultural anthropology as my specialty, I’m interested in international development and literature as well. I can give you some advice on studying abroad in general. Especially for those who want to go to non-Western or “developing” countries, I would like to talk with you various topics from concern about safety to local language. Please feel free to talk to me.
