High School Study Abroad
Studying abroad can be quite an adventure especially if you are just in High School. It can combine both education and adventure into one especially if you are going to a country you have never visited before. So if you want to take your studies in a foreign land then you better read these simple tips to get you started.
The first person you should talk to is your guidance counselor. They can help you and give you lots of information on the different programs for studying abroad. They can point out which program has the best accreditation and has a reputable qualification. You can also ask them what country would be the best to visit and study.
You may research on the country and the culture but nothing beats first hand testimonies, accounts and stories from students who have been there. You can talk to other students who have undergone the study abroad programs and ask them about the experience and what tips you can get from them if you go through with the program.
Of course, you would have to talk with your parents about this. Let them know that this is a great opportunity for you to learn abroad as well as experience other culture. You can also help them with the expenses because studying abroad can also be expensive.
Once you have chosen your destination on where to study, the next step is to visit and apply to the immigration department.
Make arrangements and clarify with both the schools that the credits you will earn abroad will be counted on your school. This is also to avoid any confusion and trouble when you come back and continue your schooling.
Lastly, enjoy every minute of it. Not all students get to experience this one of a kind opportunity to travel, study and live for one school year abroad. Make new friends, study their culture and have fun.
