Before You Go

Inform Yourself About Your Destination

Read what you can about the places you're going.

Go to StudentsAbroad to download and read a student handbook about your destination country.

If you want more information and you're going on: 

  • a faculty-led program, ask your faculty director for country information.
  • a provider's program, they will have country information on their website.
  • an exchange, contact the Center for Global Education for country-specific information.

You will need a passport and may need a visa to study abroad. Learn more about passports and visas

It is important to begin thinking about your health and safety while abroad long before your plane takes off.
