Making the decision to go abroad takes lots of time, honest reflection with yourself, and consultation with family, friends, study abroad, and academic advisors to determine if it's the right fit for you. Once you’ve decided to go abroad, and have applied to/been accepted into a program, there are some important details you need to discuss or plan for to ensure that your time abroad is as successful as possible.
