What To Consider: Important Questions To Ask Before Choosing A Program

Choosing a study abroad program that will be the right fit can be difficult. While you are researching the opportunities, keep in mind some of the following questions:

The Fundamental Question

Why do I want to study abroad, and what do I hope to gain from such an experience?

Personal Questions

What goals do I hope to attain from my experience abroad? (i.e. mastering a language, pursuing a specific hobby or area of interest?)

What skills do I already have and how developed are they?

What countries, regions, climates, etc. would I be comfortable living in and where would I definitely be unwilling to go?

When would be the ideal time to go? How long would I like to stay?

What are my preferences regarding a living situation (on my own, home stay, with other American students, with native/local students)?

Would I prefer total immersion in a culture or would I rather have other exchange students around? Am I willing to accept the possible loneliness of going overseas without a built-in network?

Practical Questions

What financial limitations do I need to take into consideration?

How much time can I take out of my academic schedule to go abroad?

How important is it to stay on a four year schedule?

Would I prefer classes in English or in another language?
