A well-prepared stay abroad is a better stay abroad. The planning of your studies abroad is a process which requires you to take responsibility. Make sure that you always have a clear understanding of what your next step will be.

Be prepared for meeting a new country and a different culture. Administrative processes, academic affairs and practical matters work differently from country to country, so prepare well. Read about your new country and its people, talk to other students who have been there before and learn a few new words.

Unexpected things can always happen, but basically you can limit your worries if you carefully handle issues such as finances, travel plans, accommodation, insurance, visa/residence permit, and pre-approval of courses before you go abroad. This way you will have time to fully enjoy your stay abroad.

SDU International will guide you to our best ability. Please remember, however, that we are not liable for planning your stay or for things happening at the host institution. You will have to plan and carry out your study abroad period - but we will be more than happy to guide and advise you in the process.

On subpages below you can find tips and advice to a number of practical matters in connection with your stay abroad - before, during and after.
