Finding An Appropriate International Study Program

Contact with other cultures can enrich students' lives and improve cross-cultural understanding and cooperation. Parents and students recognize that an educational program abroad will give the student a greater consciousness of other people, cultures, customs and languages. In today's globally interdependent world, this experience can be invaluable. Students who successfully participate in an international program report increased feelings of maturity, responsibility, and independence.

However, with the world's changing political climate and increasing number of educational opportunities, finding the right program can be overwhelming. Students can find themselves in a maze of competitive and increasingly complex educational possibilities, new laws, and changing cultural mores.
