Studying abroad is an amazing experience for students. Everyone should take advantage of the opportunity, because, after gradation, it becomes harder to visit a country for that length of time. Most students opt to study abroad for a semester in their junior year, but, depending on the university, studying abroad is available any year and for a semester or longer.

The best part about studying abroad is choosing a country or city to call home. It can be a long process to find a university in the country of your choice that fits your budget and has relevant courses. The easiest way to figure out the most suitable university and country is to map out a pro and con list to see exactly which location is best.

Always make sure to keep up communication with the admissions office and the study abroad coordinator — they will make sure courses taken abroad will transfer easily. Also, keep in contact while abroad just in case something goes wrong or the courses you wanted are no longer available.

The best advice is to stay organized. Keep any document regarding studying abroad in a folder for your records. Most likely, not everything will be needed, but it is best to keep it until it’s obvious the paper can be tossed. In addition to keeping them, make sure to read all documents carefully and take notes of anything important.
