HOW TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL STUDY ABROAD EXPERIENCE Key Tips and Questions from the Forum on Education Abroad By Brian Whalen CHOOSING TO STUDY abroad as part of your undergraduate education is more common in today’s global society than ever before. Students, professors, administrators, and corporate and government leaders understand the value of the distinctive and important outcomes of a study abroad experience. However, these outcomes and their benefits depend in great part on you. Education abroad continues to become more popular each year, yet the number of U.S. students who participate is still a relatively small percentage (3 to 7 percent) of all college and university students. If you choose to study abroad, therefore, you will have a special opportunity of which you should take full advantage. Choosing to study abroad, however, is an important decision that requires you to weigh several factors. For example, what are the important things for you to think about when choosing a study abroad program? How can you discern the quality of the programs that you are considering? How should you prepare to study abroad? And how can you make the most of studying abroad? On the following pages are some practical suggestions based on my 20+ years of advising and discussing study abroad with students. I should say also that I am the parent of two college students, and between them they have studied abroad (not surprisingly) on seven different programs. I hope what I have learned about what makes study abroad most rewarding will be helpful to you.
