Plan & Prepare


Academic Planning

Do the courses offered at the host instituion meet my needs? Do I have enough credits left in my degree to be a full-time student while abroad? Has my department/faculty advisor approved my courses? 


Funding my Exchange

Can I afford to go on exchange? Do I know what the cost of living will be in my host country? Are there ways that I can fund my exchange?


Student Visa & Passport

Am I required to get a student visa? What immigration paperwork do I need to complete in order to study in my host country? How long will this process take? Do I have a valid passport?


Review Academic Calendar at Host

Does the academic calendar at the host institution meet my needs? Will I be able to stay at the partner for the entire semester, or will it conflict with my plans back home? Will it conflict with my co-op work?



Does the institution I wish to attend offer courses in English? Do I want to take my courses in a another language? Do I want to go to an English-speaking country, or do I want to learn a new language?
