Preparing to Study Abroad: What You Don’t Already Know

Before you go abroad, people flood your mind with all of the “things” you HAVE to do before you embark on your amazing new journey. Visas, currency exchanges, and packing are certainly on the pre-study-abroad to-do list, but there are many things they don’t tell you. I’m here to tell you the things you don’t already know about how to prepare for studying abroad.

If you don’t wear it in the United States, chances are you will not wear it abroad.

Packing for a 4-month, 2-month, or yearlong journey can be quite the daunting task. You try your very best to pack as much as you can into your suitcase without going over the 50 lb. weight limit. However, I can promise you that you will not wear the cardigan from the back of your closet that you haven’t worn in two years. Pack basic items of clothing and things that you ACTUALLY wear. You will most likely shop in whatever study abroad location you are in, because foreign fashion is so much cooler.
