Study Abroad Reading List

There's a lot of planning that goes into study abroad, and the more you read up on tips for traveling, coping, and surviving abroad, the better your experience will be.  Below are some helpful guides and articles to help you get ready. 

► To get started, read the UNCG study abroad guide, Going Places.pdf

► Then, continue your research by clicking on any of the resource names below.  Unless otherwise specified, each article appeared in the magazine Transitions Abroad, a good source of further materials.  

► Next, you should begin researching your specific host country, its culture(s), and way(s) of life. You may want to begin with the Country Handbook maintained by the ISEP community.
