Choices Matter

Studying or doing an internship abroad doesn’t have to be an expensive venture, but where you go can dramatically impact the cost.  Answer the following questions before deciding on a program, and be sure to share your thoughts with your Education Abroad Advisor.

Why go abroad?  What do you hope to accomplish? 

What are your restrictions on going abroad?

In general, it’s important to be honest with yourself about whether there is another, less expensive place to accomplish your same goals.  If your criteria are pretty rigid, you have to be the one to decide if it’s worth the price.  Your advisor might have some great suggestions for less expensive options if you can be flexible!
