The more that you do to prepare for your study abroad experience, the more you will enjoy it. We hope that you will carefully read the material we have compiled for you, and then follow links to read more about the country to which you are going. Even for the most seasoned travelers, and for those who attended our General Pre-Departure Orientations held on the USF campus, there is very useful information contained in this Pre-Departure Guide.
Much of it was gathered from a variety of individuals in the Education Abroad Office, and others at the University of South Florida. In addition, we have "borrowed" from a variety of resources, including, but not limited to NAFSA, OSAC, Michigan State University and the University of Florida.
If you find information that you think should be updated or changed, we ask that you let us know. Be safe and have a wonderful experience.
