Before Departure

Before you plan to go abroad it is a good idea to consider the many different things you will need to know and to do in order to make an overseas experience enjoyable, safe, and useful. Not all of the information you will need is available on the Internet, so USNEI urges you to consult with colleagues who may be experienced study travelers, academic advisers, study abroad and/or employment counselors, and resource persons such as your local librarian who can help you find out as much information as possible.
