Preparing for Departure

Students study in the streets of Salamanca, Spain

You've carefully considered what you'd like to study, submitted your application, and you've been accepted to your program. Congratulations! The months and weeks prior to embarking on an off-campus study experience are a critical period. While your off-campus experience will always include the unexpected, thorough preparation prior to departure will equip you with the tools you need to navigate new cultures and academic environments.

The resources in this section provides guidance on different ways of teaching and learning while off-campus, registering for courses, important health and safety considerations, and information about other resources such as pre-departure orientations that will provide program-specific information.
