Resources for Parents
Studying abroad is an incredible experience that will most likely be a life changing event for your student. As a parent, it is natural to have apprehension about sending your student across the globe to go to school. But the experience of studying abroad is more than just studying; students learn about:
- The culture of where they are staying
- Their own culture
- How to handle new situations
- Team work and adaptability
- The possibilities available to them
It is rare to find a student who comes back after studying abroad who has not been changed by their experience, even more rare to find a student who did not enjoy their experience.
But studying abroad is not something that can be done quickly; it takes planning and time to make it a reality. Students will need to plan out their academics, finances, and even make sure their affairs are taken care of in the US. It is very difficult for a student to prepare for this life changing experience if they do not have the support of their family.
