In addition, we encourage you to complete a Pre-program Self-assessment. This questionnaire is not required, but is a good tool for you to identify some skills that you think you will gain with your study abroad experience, as well as the expectations you have about your program. When you return, you may want to see which skills you actually acquired or improved and how much has changed thanks to your experience abroad!

TIP: Don't forget to take care of personal needs like forwarding mail, arranging for plants to be watered, storing your car, etc.

ALMOST READY! Pack, board a plane and have the time of your life!

Discover the Buff in you.
