Study Abroad Programs - Our guide provides an in-depth look at what studying abroad is -- where to go, what to study -- as well as the financial factors to consider . Studying abroad can be a unique and fulfilling opportunity, but it can also be very costly. With this guide, we show students and their families that it's possible to study abroad without breaking the bank.

Studying abroad is an exciting opportunity, although the programs offered can be overwhelming and heavy on the wallet. As a student and traveler - it is important to be all well-informed as possible when making the decision on where to embark on this next big adventure.

Our guidebook includes a checklist for safe and smart travel - including a list of things to know, ways on how to finance this grand adventure, and safety resources to have knowledge of when out of the country.
