Finalize Your Plans

Before Leaving




It is your choice whether you wish to live on or off campus. If you choose to live off-campus, we suggest that you do not pay for any accommodation until you arrive at your destination.*


Health Insurance

Health insurance is mandatory for your exchange. Your coverage can be the CSU's Health Insurance, personal coverage or coverage required by the host country. You should find out which applies to you.



Do not purchase your flight until you have received your official admission letter from your host institution and your exchange is confirmed.*



Notify your bank before you leave to ensure that you will have access to your funds while abroad. If you plan to open a bank account while abroad, check to see if any are associated with your bank back home. 

*Concordia International is not liable for any costs you may incur from booking or cancelling your flights or accommodation.
