I am originally from Australia but studied abroad in the U.S. to get both my Bachelors’s and MBA degrees. I volunteered for 2 years in Europe and almost 1 year in India. My wife also studied abroad at Oxford for 2 months over a Summer to study photography.
We believe studying abroad is one of the most beneficial experiences possible for a college student. By learning outside of your domestic bubble, students have the opportunity to take in new cultures, see the world, and find new passions.
No doubt, preparing to go abroad as a student can be challenging (and daunting!), so we’ve put together a list of what to pack, what to wear, and what NOT to pack before you study abroad.
