Planning for Study Abroad. Fastback Series 228.
Swinger, Alice K.
A guide for students of all ages anticipating a period of study abroad contains useful information about its benefits, the value of establishing purposes and setting goals, and other matters that would be of concern to the first-time student abroad. Topics discussed are: considerations in the selection of programs for study abroad, ways of gaining background for travel, the need for and means of keeping in touch with those at home, money management, arranging for official documents, ways of preserving memories of the travel, determining what to take along, coping with adjustment and the concerns of daily life in a foreign country, taking advantage of the last few weeks away from home to schedule last activities, and preparing for re-entry.
