Before You Depart

In this section we want to give you a few suggestions about how to get started thinking about the new culture you will be encountering, and how best to make the most of that encounter, and to offer some links about health and safety while studying abroad.

During the entire time you are studying abroad you will be learning about the world and about yourself, in ways you may only vaguely have imagined before. We also believe that learning about the culture you are visiting, and observing some common sense rules about health and safety while you are there, will make your experience all the more valuable. Please take some time to consult the web sites listed here before you leave for your study abroad destination.
