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.
Being accepted for Study Abroad is an exciting time but make sure you have done all the necessary preparation and planning before you go.
Visas for study abroad
Find out about visa requirements and costs early in your planning. They might affect your decision about where to apply.
Financial evidence for visa applications
Most countries require that you show evidence that you can support yourself financially for the duration of your study abroad year. Without this evidence, they will not issue your student visa.
Make sure you've got the right insurance. For some countries and universities you must purchase a local health insurance policy, on top of your University of Leeds insurance and any top-up cover you may choose to buy.
You will need to find your accommodation abroad yourself, but there are several resources that can help you.
Improving your language skills and fluency is one of the benefits of study abroad, but be prepared to put in some work before you go and once you've arrived.
