Funding and costs
Work out the financial implications of a year abroad, including information about tuition fees, student loan, living costs and possible funding.
There's lots to consider before you apply including eligibility, type of programme, languages, how you'll research destinations and the application process.
Once you know you'll be studying abroad, you'll need to arrange accommodation, insurance, visas, proof of your finances and maybe some foreign language studies.
Short programmes, usually through summer schools, are a great chance to experience study and life in another country.
