3 Study Abroad Tips

The opportunity to study abroad is a once in a lifetime experience that you’ll remember forever. It’s totally normal to be super nervous (and excited) about this adventure!

Not sure what to buy before you leave? Here’s 25 Things you Need to get Before you Study Abroad

3 Important Study Abroad Tips

Through my study abroad experience, I found these 3 key (and often overlooked) tips essential to my success during my time studying abroad.

3 Study Abroad Tips

1. Spend Quality Time in your Study Abroad City.

Not spending much time in my study abroad city was the BIGGEST MISTAKE I made during my study abroad experience! Coming from America and studying abroad in the UK, the budget flights across Europe were like my own personal playground. Every weekend, I was off to explore another country.

3 Days Sahara Desert Tour

Remember that you likely will get to travel quite a bit more in the future, but this is probably the only time you’ll actually get to LIVE abroad somewhere.

Spend this time getting to know the locals. Join a community club, visit the farmers market, go to local events.

2. Join a Club at School.

Joining a club at your university abroad is a great way to meet new people. You’ll be surprised at the variety of clubs offered at most universities!

Fairytale City of England

I personally joined a Disney movie club. A few times a month we would watch a Disney movie and sometimes have dinners together and this allowed me to meet a lot of new friends.

3. Stock up on Medications Before you Leave.

This is probably the most important piece of advice I could give you! Be sure to stock up months worth of medications, contraceptives, favorite supplements, vitamins, etc. before you leave.

3 Study Abroad Tips

Don’t assume that you will have easy access to these things in your country abroad. Even if you do, the medication may be slightly different and it’s just NOT something you want to deal with while you’re enjoying your time abroad.

Also, something to consider is bringing vitamins and supplements with you, even if you don’t typically take them. Depression and seasonal depression can be super common during your time abroad for a number of reasons. One being you’re away from your friends and family. Two, the weather could be totally different than what you’re used to.

Enjoy your Study Abroad Adventure!
