Study abroad is a potentially valuable experience in today’s global economy. With proper preparation it can be transformational. It can open you to the appreciation of other cultures; develop the transferable intercultural skills for interacting with people from different backgrounds; and deepen your self-awareness about your values and expectations. It can build confidence as you learn to navigate unfamiliar situations, and help you deal with the ambiguities of life. Study abroad also develops knowledge and insights about our interconnected world that will serve you well whether you choose a career in business, non-profits, education, or government. A recent study by IES Abroad found that many employers value the intercultural skills and personal development that students gain from their travel. Students who had studied abroad reported higher starting salaries and were more likely to have landed a job within six months of graduation than the national average. This book is written for you, as a student who is learning about the world first-hand, and probably traveling abroad for the first time. It addresses the challenges of adapting thinking and behavior as you travel in an unfamiliar environment, of making the most of the opportunities, and of meeting and interacting with the locals. This book is designed to help you prepare for your study abroad experience so you can get the most from it, and gain critical intercultural skills while crossing cultures. It offers strategies for learning about and exploring cultural differences and similarities of the country you will visit; and advice about how to actively observe and participate in the life of the locality in which you will find yourself. Each chapter illustrates key concepts through the personal accounts of students who have "been there, done that.” This book aims to help you with your own personal journey, and to make your study abroad experience as meaningful, rewarding, and insightful as possible.

Imagine you have the opportunity to travel, study, or work abroad. You're interested, but have no experience leaving your country, or even know where to start. This journey can help you with that.

It can be scary giving up your way of life but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I will give you some tips on navigating another country. I spent over 10 years of my life traveling, studying, and working abroad. Going through the anticipation of leaving your home country is a big change. You'll need a guide to give you some inspiration along the way. I will give details on my entire process from booking your flights to applying for your first job abroad. My life studying abroad in Pamplona, Spain then venturing to Munich, Germany to work abroad were some of the best moments, and biggest challenges in my life. During college it was important to gain life experience and build connections. The rewards of building a global network, an international family, achieving high levels of fluency in Spanish and German was well worth it. It was fun, amazing, and challenging. It doesn't matter if you're old or young. If you have a desire to see a piece of the world in another country, Go for it! Life is about enjoying the moments you have. Living abroad is a life changing experience. When I was preparing to go abroad, I would have loved to have someone document their experiences in the form of a guide and put them in a book. This book gives the reader a new confidence in preparing for their adventure abroad. I hope to inspire you to venture among your horizons. I have put together an informational checklist on things you need to be aware of when preparing for your travel, work, and study abroad.

Studying abroad has become a key educational means for preparing graduates with the intercultural competencies needed to succeed in our global economy. The federal government, business community, and higher education sector are united in their belief that study abroad is critical to such success. This monograph seeks to address two fundamental questions: Who studies abroad (or who does not) and why? What are the outcomes of study abroad? Increasing and broadening study abroad participation have proven particularly challenging, and the authors look to the research for how it might be improved. Although research suggests positive outcomes of study abroad, existing studies leave educators with some challenging questions. Based on their review, the authors pose recommendations for ways in which study abroad in the twenty-first century can renew its purposes and fulfill its promise.

Language plays an essential role in how we portray our personalities. Through social interaction, others develop a picture of us based on our linguistic cues. However, when we interact in a foreign language and in a new country, limitations in linguistic and cultural knowledge can make self-presentation a more difficult task. This book explores the problems faced by language students embarking on study abroad programmes, spending time in a foreign country and having to interact - and express their personalities - in a second language. Drawing on her extensive work with students, Valerie Pellegrino Aveni explores the factors that complicate self-presentation and the strategies students use for overcoming these, looking in particular at issues of anxiety, control, age, gender, risk-taking and self-esteem. Offering rich insights into the study abroad experience, this book will be an invaluable resource for professionals in second language acquisition, and for teachers and students preparing for study abroad.

The Decision To Study Abroad

This dissertation addresses international education's need for a theoretical model and research on the student decision process for study abroad. It builds upon earlier research (Peterson, 2001) that proposed and tested the Decision to Study Abroad Model, a theoretical approach based on Fishbein and Ajzen's Theory of Reasoned Action. While the earlier work particularly focused on the intention to study abroad and its predictors, the present research investigates the opinions and experiences of study abroad participants and explores factors related to communication strategies. Data were collected from 239 participants, supplemented by two subsets of subjects from the earlier study--37 study abroad participants and 313 nonparticipants--for an overall subject count of 589. Comparisons are made between characteristics and beliefs of single and multiple study abroad participants as well as nonparticipants to better understand distinct differences and similarities among the groups. Comparisons revealed that participants have statistically significantly higher means for attitude, subjective norm, behavioral beliefs, evaluation of outcomes, and normative beliefs about study abroad than do nonparticipants. Further, participants engage in more information seeking (both passive and active) about study abroad than do nonparticipants, who primarily engage in passive information seeking. Students who engaged in multiple study abroad programs consider and commit to studying abroad earlier than do one-time participants. Earlier regression analysis demonstrated that attitude toward study abroad and subjective norm successfully predicted intention to study abroad, with subjective norm being the stronger predictor. The current research tested a similar model for intention to study abroad again; however, the results yielded a small regression effect, with attitude being stronger. These findings may be related to the intervention of the study abroad experience itself or overall maturation. Post/Then measures of attitude, behavioral beliefs, evaluation of outcomes, and normative beliefs showed positive increases; however, motivation to comply decreased, which contributed to overall lower measures for subjective norm. Regarding communication issues, study abroad participants unanimously agreed that "study abroad would open my eyes to the world" was the most important reason for their decision to study abroad. They cited study abroad program faculty leaders and former participants as the most influential messengers from whom they received study abroad information. "Financial issues" were identified as the most important information needed for the decision to study abroad. This was followed by "benefits and rewards of study abroad." Initial investigations with new variables (satisfaction, reasons against studying abroad again, and sequencing choice) and intention to study abroad again were not productive.

This report discusses the response of colleges and universities in the United States to the need of graduate students to become equipped to make personal and public policy decisions as citizens of an international society. Curriculum changes are showing a tightening of foreign language standards in schools of higher education and, throughout the curriculum, faculty are including material from other countries and advances in computer and satellite communication to enhance the international experience without leaving the classroom. Additionally, the international focus on higher education has been boosted through a major U.S. initiative that tripled federal spending on undergraduate study abroad. The United States is also cooperating with foreign representatives in working with the Economic Community and the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization to standardize educational credential reporting, licensing, and certification. Governments are also looking with increased regulatory fervor upon joint educational business ventures. Steps that faculty and administrators can take to improve international education on their campuses are explored, including widening the curriculum to expose students to other cultures, widening opportunities for international contact, and evaluating organizational structures that help or hinder international activities. Contains approximately 200 references and an index. (GLR).
