I’ve been presented with an extensive list of excuses why not to study abroad; price, FOMO (fear of missing out), fear in general, etc, etc. It’s all¬†BS. College should be a time to step outside of your comfort zone. This includes studying abroad. I’ve created this guide to provide a step-by-step analysis to getting yourself where you want to be.

These are all questions you need to seriously consider! Believe it or not, there are more programs out there than you could possibly sift through.
