Going Abroad - Helpful Tips

Studying abroad and travelling abroad comes with a lot of rules and suggestions. You may get all your information that you need from a school counselor, a friend with experience or a website but there are a few things to consider that most people forget to mention, here are a few:

Communication: Depending on where you decide to study, your communication methods may be limited. Overseas calls can add up on your cell phone if you don’t have an international plan. Before you head abroad talk with your phone carrier and see what options they offer and be aware of internet usage on your phone as well, high charges may apply. Internet on computer can be hard to come by depending where you are. There are many internet cafes that you can use; a lot of these cafes have a timed session. So carry coins and plan ahead.
