Studying Abroad

Studying abroad can be a fun and safe
experience but it is important to realizethat you are subject to the laws and
customs of another country. Here are sometips prepared by the Office of
Overseas Services to help keep you prepared andsafe.

  • Although most trips abroad are trouble free,
    being prepared will go a long
    way to avoiding the possibility of serious trouble.
  • Become familiar with the basic laws and
    customs of the country you plan to
    visit before you travel.

    Preparing for Your Trip Abroad
    Apply early for your passport and, if necessary, any visas: Passports
    arerequired to enter and/or depart most countries around the world. Apply for
    apassport as soon as possible. Some countries also require U.S. citizens
    toobtain visas before entering. Most countries require visitors who are
    planningto study or work abroad to obtain visas before entering. Check with
    the embassyof the foreign country that you are planning to visit for
    up-to-date visa andother entry requirements.

    Learn about the countries that you
    plan to visit. Before departing, take the time to do some research about the
    people and their culture, and any problems that the country is experiencing
    that may affect your travel plans.

    The Department of State publishes Background
    Notes on about 170 countries. These brief, factual pamphlets contain
    information on each country''s culture, history, geography, economy,
    government, and current political situation. Find out what information your
    school offers. Find out whether your school offers additional information for
    students who are planning to study, travel, or work abroad.

    Many student advisors can provide you with
    information about studying or working abroad. They may also be able to provide
    you with information on any travel benefits for students (e.g. how to save
    money on transportation and accommodations, and other resources.) Before
    committing yourself or your finances, find out about the organization and what
    it offers. The majority of private programs for vacation,

    study or work abroad are reputable and
    financially sound. However, some charge exorbitant fees, use deliberately
    false "educational" claims, and provide working conditions far different from
    those advertised. Even programs of legitimate organizations can be poorly
