[ID:8878] The Why Go Abroad? answers the big questions about going abroad! Why should you go? Who can help you? What challenges might you have to overcome? If you're thinking about heading abroad (and you should be!), this section is for you.
- Think big, do the unexpected: During your research and exploration phase, dream big. Consider unusual destinations and alternative go-abroad options (i.e. volunteering in a developing nation instead of studying in Europe.) Don't underestimate the value of stepping outside your comfort zone to gain cross-cultural experience!
- Start your research early: The more time you give yourself to explore options and speak with advisors, the better equipped you'll be to make a decision about which program is right for you. Ask around to find unexpected go-abroad options and ideas. There might be a type of program you've never even considered. Think about what you want to achieve by going abroad or completing a virtual international program.
