Upon acceptance into a study abroad program, YOU are responsible for making all necessary travel arrangements, unless they are included in your program. It is important to arrange your flight as soon as you know the date you are scheduled to arrive in your host country. Waiting until the last minute to make your travel arrangements may increase the cost of your airfare.
Buying a ticket through a travel agency will provide you with more personal assistance and help in case of date changes. Travel agents are often very knowledgeable about discounts and can help you plan the best route for your travels.
Student travel agencies often have good discounts for students. You may need to provide proof that you are a student or have an International Student Identification Card.
When purchasing a ticket, make sure to read fine print, such as changing fees and the cancellation policy. If you plan on traveling after your program ends, you may need to buy an open-ended ticket, or plan on paying a fee to change the return date.
A travel partner might make the transition into another country easier. Ask your adviser how you can contact other students in your program to travel with.
