In a world that continues to move rapidly toward globalization, it is important for students to expand their global awareness and gain international experience. Study abroad programs offer students an excellent way to develop themselves both personally and professionally. Entering a foreign country and/or university setting can be an overwhelming life and cultural transition, and it is important to remember that despite all that is learned while abroad, problems will arise. With proper preparation and a clear understanding of what might happen during an international learning experience, possible complications during the transition process can be alleviated so that students gain the most from their study abroad experience.
