Visiting A College Campus Before You Apply

When May and June roll around students will begin their summer break. Many students will just hang out at the pool or lay around and do nothing for 3 months. Some students will use this break from school to further their education and broaden their horizons, by attending a summer abroad program. If you have the means and are motivated then a summer abroad program is an excellent experience for a high school student. He or she will get to experience a different country and learn to appreciate another culture. Here are some of the available summer abroad programs for high school students.

Eating out might be fun and novel at first, but all study abroad students in Europe soon learn that eating out breaks the piggy bank like few other expenses. Instead of dining out, find a hostel that allows you to cook your own food. Most hostels have resident access to the kitchens. If not, then there’s not harm in settling for break and cheese. After all, you’re a study abroad student – not a millionaire!

The downside is that it will be much more challenging for your child to navigate everything on her own. But – she can probably handle it. Keep in mind there are plenty of countries where it makes sense to go on a program. My sister studied and volunteered in Tanzania, and felt that her program, CCS, was very helpful to her experience. Europe is a good example, though, of a place where your child might be able to handle going on her own. After all, when, say, German or Chinese students study in the US, they don’t come here on yurtdışı üniversite! They just enroll in our universities. Your kid can take it, too.

This is the most dangerous way in which criticism occurs. It can occur in the middle of setback or at the early stage of our endeavour. Out of the majority of people in the world only few minority are able to stab it in the face. It has a way of capturing people, force them to lose their enthusiasm, makes them face humiliation and at the end become an object of ridicule. One thing that differentiates it with others is that it is certain that it will occur once in a lifetime.

After my first experience abroad, I studied abroad for both years of graduate school studying art at the University College of London. The UCL is a great school because it’s right in the center of the city, near Oxford Street and the British Museum. While I was there, I was able to visit every monument and place of interest as well as see tons of West End plays. Paris isn’t too far away from London (about 2 hours by train), so some of the other graduate study abroad students from England and I went frequently to the Louvre and Musee D’Orsay. Now that I’m back in the States, I really feel lucky to have been able to take advantage of such a great city doing my study abroad in England.

A big piece of advice that I’d give to students is to link into networks of people ASAP when you get in-country. Find clubs to join at your school, go couchsurfing in nearby cities and meet people, and so on. One of the biggest challenges students face abroad is loneliness..

After I graduate from college, I intend to return to Japan to either be a study abroad advisor at the university or to teach students English. I think that if I were to have to choose a study abroad program again, I would choose to go to Japan over anywhere else in the world. If you’re going – you will have an experience you’ll never forget.
