I am originally from Australia but studied abroad in the US to get both my Bachelors 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 studying abroad, students have the opportunity to take in a new culture, see the world and find new passions.
No doubt, preparing to go abroad as a student can be challenging (or daunting!), so we’ve put together a list of what to pack, and more importantly, what NOT to pack before you study abroad.
