Ten Tips for Students Preparing for Summer Study or Intern Abroad!

It has been a little over a year now since I took the first step off the ledge of uncertainty and embarked upon one of my MOST life changing experiences. A year later, I can look back on my "expatriation experience", as I like to call it, and give practical advice to all the study abroad newbie's. As the school term winds down, those planning a summer study abroad are no doubt wondering what exactly to expect from their upcoming journey. Take it from me, expect the unexpected. Whatever you expect will happen, expect it not to happen. That's not said to scare you off and demand a refund from your program provider, but simply to encourage you to be alert and aware that studying abroad will be like nothing you have experienced.
