Study abroad is a life-changing experience. It can bring fresh perspectives on your academic major and career choices.

However, planning is crucial to the success of overseas study and should begin at least one year prior to departure. How well
U.S. students achieve their personal and academic objectives--and their long-range career goals--depends on their choice of the right country, institution, and program.

It is also imperative that students involve their academic advisors in the process of choosing a program. This is to ensure that academic credit can be granted for the work done abroad. It is also very helpful to meet and speak with students from other countries who are studying in the
U.S.A. to learn what it is like to be an "International Student."
