Studying Abroad is a great opportunity for people to truly be on their own in a completely different setting. It’s something that everyone should take advantage of if they are fortunate enough to go. Within the next few weeks, I will be studying in Australia for a semester. Having done a music study abroad program back in high school, it makes me reminisce about the good and bad memories as I’m starting to get similar feelings I had back then. These are 4 Stages of Studying Abroad; keep in mind that everyone has a different experiences and the stages could be in a different order depending on the person.
You will initially feel ecstatic about going abroad. Who wouldn’t be excited to travel? But, as you get closer and closer to the start of your program, you might get a little nervous. Afterall, you will be entering an unfamiliar environment on your own for a long period of time. You will have to make new friends, which can be nerve wrecking for some people. In addition, saying “Goodbye” to your friends and family back at home won’t make it easier to leave.
When you arrive to where you will be studying at, you won’t know what to expect. You’re basically exploring territory unknown to you. However, it is extremely important to push yourself to get out of your comfort zone. Doing it early on in the program will make it easier to make friends and learn about your place of travel. Remember, it is whatever you make of it.

This is the stage when you start getting used to everything. You’ve got a solid group of friends and you’ve become more confident of your surroundings.
As you near the end of your trip, you get the same feelings as you did in the beginning. You are excited to go back home to see your friends and family, but you’re sad to say “Goodbye” to your new friends and the place that you’ve made your temporary home at.
Growing up, I was a really active person. I did things like basketball, skiing, gymnastics, band, yearbook club, honor societies, martial arts, etc. But I enjoy traveling and learning about history (I know, you’re probably thinking “Well that’s boring”). Although I can be active, I also just like simply just watching Netflix or something.
