Getting Started

Define your goals and objectives

To begin, define your academic and personal objectives as the top priority. While it’s easy to imagine that the best way to begin your program search is to decide on a location, it can be helpful to consider other factors first. If you begin by first determining what you want to gain from the experience, it can help you to define the kind of program that is the best fit for you.  Use the pre-departure list to get organized.  Some factors to consider:

Academics

Language

Duration

Independence

Location and Geographic Interests

Career

 
Financial and Personal Issues
