Alison’s Answer

Hi Rohit! Studying abroad can be a great experience, and it's awesome that you're looking into it! I wasn't sure if you meant a short-term study abroad trip or studying at a university in another country but hopefully this advice helps. At my university, we had a variety of study abroad programs, from semester-long programs to year-long ones. I did a semester abroad; before I went, I planned out my courses and discussed my course plan with my advisor. I also met with my advisor to select courses and submit the correct materials if required. Our university also had an office that assisted in applying for visas and appropriate paperwork that I had to submit before going. I started planning for study abroad about a semester beforehand, so I knew that I'd be able to complete my degree by the time I returned.

If you're looking to study abroad in another country, I would do research into what types of tests are required along with visa requirements. I would also discuss your options with your high school or university advisor. The school you're interested in also likely has relevant materials or orientation info on their website you ought to look into - they may also have important scholarship information as well. Good luck!
Thank you comment icon Hi Alison: great advice and thanks for sharing your experience! Sheila Jordan

Hi Rohit,

Great question! I also had a lot of qualms on how to go about studying abroad / coordinating all of that. I recommend for you to chat with your college's study abroad office or if you aren't in college yet to google and find the study abroad office website of schools you are thinking of attending/applying to. The websites may have helpful pamphlets on the process. Each school has a different process and even depending on what study abroad program that may differ as well. I recommend for you to speak to an advisor specific to what you are looking to apply to.

Some potential factors to also think about:
1. Countries - proximity of travel to other countries, currency, passports
2. Programs - class requirements, attendance policy, pass/fail policy, transfer of credits, housing requirements
3. Financial Aid - implications, currency rate, use of local currency or credit cards, where to get the best rate

Emmy’s Answer

Hello Rohit,

I would also highly recommend to study abroad. If you haven't selected a college yet, when looking at colleges look at their study abroad program. How many programs do they offer, what kind of financial assistance or scholarships do they offer, and what kind of support do they offer in studying abroad. In addition to spending time abroad, spending time in classes that focus on cross-cultural communication and awareness is hugely important. It is important to learn about other cultures, how we are all unique and different, and how to communicate effectively and respectfully across cultures.
Best of luck to you!

Rebecca’s Answer

I am glad to hear that you plan to study abroad. It is a good experience for you to learn the culture of another country and try to live independently. I am not sure how old you are and what grade you plan to start studying abroad.
The first thing you can start doing some research and shortlist a few countries you would like to go . Then, you can locate the school(s) / universities that is suitable / accept overseas students and the financial arrangement. You may also consider the culture, accommodation, etc. of the country.
You can then start submit your applications to the school/universities you shortlisted.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Studying abroad is an amazing opportunity and helps you become independent, discover a new culture, and learn a new language maybe as well.
Whether you are planning to study abroad for a semester, one year, or more, the process is relatively the same.

The first thing you need is to look up to different college options, and figure out which program you want and which country.
After that, you will go into the website, where you will find all the necessary information, as well as contact information, that you can call to ask all your questions. And from there, you can narrow your choices based on the country, program, language and accomodations.

I would highly recommend to look into your school's study abroad website! I'm currently studying in South Korea and it was all possible due to my school's programs. Theres also many resources that you can find online such as financial aid and scholarship. Start planning early!

Gloria’s Answer

I studied abroad. I applied for the honor through the university where I was going. Schools can offer a variety of options, but mine was associated with my degree program. I think that one of the factors that can be changing is a change of language and slang. I studied in Mexico and my Spanish is based on Puerto Rican family lessons. That created some interesting misunderstandings. Otherwise, I would say that you should be fully committed to where you are living. At least try all of the local food, one bite. Food is the way that cultures communicate.
