Preparing to Study Abroad

Girls in Ireland

Like any significant undertaking, studying abroad requires attention and preparation over several months prior to the international experience. We believe the study abroad experience begins with the program selection and application process. The process fosters the independence and responsibility necessary to navigate the academic, social, and logistical environment of a host country and university. Therefore, we encourage students to take a very active role in all aspects of the study abroad process: from gathering application materials to researching visa requirements to learning about their host country's history and culture.
