Study Abroad Study abroad
Congratulations on your decision to study, intern, or work overseas! We think you have made a terrific and life-changing decision, and we want you to be prepared for your experience.   The attached handbook is designed to do just that by answering some basic questions about traveling and living abroad.  It will also provide you with resources for gathering other important information.  This handbook should be read thoroughly before your departure and maybe again on the long flight over.  Please be sure to take it with you, as it contains important contact information that you may need while away.

Keep in mind that we have tried to cover the most important topics in this guide; however, you may find yourself with additional questions not covered here.  Please do not hesitate to contact us when questions arise. We will do our best to answer them or point you in the right direction.

Stepping outside of your own comfort zone to experience a different culture will be an eye opening experience, will teach you a great deal about yourself, and may change your world view. If you have read this far, then you are ready to prepare for the adventure of your lifetime! Bon Voyage!
