Studying abroad offers an exciting yet daunting opportunity. It includes a lot of preparations as you would be going to a new place, new culture, etc. Some curriculums include an introduction package in an attempt to better prepare students for the challenges that will come with studying abroad. It provides general facts and information about the particular country as well as what to expect when returning from abroad.

You've heard it once; you've heard it a thousand times: something like, "I never imagined I could have developed so much," or, "it's been an unreal experience that I'm eternally grateful for." True, the personal and professional growth you're experiencing while you're abroad, whether you're studying, interning, or both will not just help your resume stand out but also to have anreal experience.

After you've adapted to living and studying abroad successfully, you'll have to plan to return home. You should have an equally hard time adjusting to your native culture in the beginning which will change as time passes.

The beginner you are to adjust and embrace your new environment, the better you adapt and succeed. For a short time you're just overseas so make the most of it in the little time you've got.
