Resources for Students: What to Expect
Everyone experiences "culture shock" differently. While the term
may sound scary, it is only part of the larger process of travelling
and being abroad. While studying abroad can be an incredible
experience, it often takes time to adjust to a new culture, living
arrangements, food, language and immersion in the unfamiliar. Some
students may feel overwhelmed, others homesick. Whether itís six
weeks or six months, living and studying in another country means
making some big changes to your daily life. You may experience
discomfort before you are able to function well in a new setting.
The main things to remember is that this is a difficult and very
normal process that everyone goes through and that the staff will be
as much of a resource to you as possible.
