Sending a son or daughter overseas can be an anxious experience for any parent. There are a number of ways that you can inform and prepare yourself, and your student, for their experience. Here are answers to some common questions that parents of Education Abroad participants often have:
Students should take a number of factors into consideration when deciding on a program. Aspects such as the culture and language of the host country, the size and location of the host institution, the types of courses typcially offered, and the housing arrangements can all play a role in this important decision. While it is important that you encourage your students to thoroughly consider their options, it is equally important that they reach a decision on their own. Students are more likely to benefit from and appreciate a program which they have chosen on their own accord.
