Once you have been accepted into a study abroad program, you must next pay serious attention to the details of preparing to go abroad.

Once you have been accepted into a study abroad program, you must next pay serious attention to the details of preparing to go abroad. Just as you did when you chose what to study and where, give yourself plenty of time to make all of the many necessary pre-departure arrangements.

Choosing a study abroad program that is the "right fit" for you is the best way to achieve your personal and academic goals for study abroad, as well as assist you with your long-range career plans.

Start by realistically assessing your academic and personal preparation and objectives: 

  • What do you want or need to study?
  • Do you need to earn credit while abroad, or would a work abroad program not for credit be possible?
  • Are you fluent enough in a foreign language to take classes in it, or will it be necessary for you to take some or all of your coursework in English?
  • How much time can you afford to spend abroad, in terms of academic time and economic resources?
  • Where do you want to go? Why?
  • How structured or open of a program are you looking for?
  • Do you want to live in a dorm with other Americans, stay with a local family, or have some other housing option?
  • How much money can you spend on tuition and fees? On housing and food? On international transportation?
  • Will you need to apply for financial aid? Is it available?
