Your dream is to go on a study trip abroad but you have no idea where to start planning? Well, you just stay calm. Today in that post we will show you how to plan your trip in seven steps.
How to plan your study trip in 7 steps
1. To be studied
Before anything else, it is important to know that you will be studying abroad during your academic year. If you are going to do a language course, degree or postgraduate course. It is also possible to choose some kind of alternative specialization. Done that, if you can go for step two.
2. Where do you want to study
After knowing that you want to study, it’s time to find a destination for that incredible journey. Do you like the cold or the heat better? Do you want to be in a big city or a quieter town? It is important to think about these points so that your trip is the most perfect for you. Here in Egali, we have special packages for rich destinations like Australia, USA, Canada, Ireland, England, South Africa, New Zealand, Italy, Germany, France, Malta, and Chile.
3. How long has it been
Okay, you know where you’re going on your field trip, but how long are you going to stay there? This will depend on how much time you have available and the type of course you choose. We have packages for 2 weeks of study to 25 weeks of study + work. It all depends on what you’re looking for. If you want to travel on holiday, if you are going to experience a sabbatical year or if you want to spend a few months perfecting a language.
With studies, destination and duration ready, it is time to look for accommodation. With Egali, you suddenly have the opportunity to stay in one of our Egali Houses. This will be your first accommodation, where you will find students from all over the world and you will have time to look for a fixed location with more peace of mind.
One of the most important things when planning a field trip is to think of all the necessary documents. Living abroad can be a headache if you don’t prepare yourself. That’s why it’s important to know everything that you as a student from another country need to have in your hands so that you don’t go through unforeseen events in your destiny. For this, here in Egali, we have the Student Support which is a pre- and post-boarding orientation. The student can count on the help and knowledge of our advisors to know everything about documents, visa, student card, vaccination card, etc.
6. Make routes
After all the hardest work done, it’s advisable to think about what you’re going to do besides study. Planning, not even if it is quickly, where you want to go, what trips you want to make, what places you want to know, can help you to be more relaxed in relation to the trip and thus it will also be possible to save, because deciding these commitments in advance, many tickets are cheaper, you have time to organize cheaper routes and you will not be surprised with high values.
7. Be open to new experiences
Last step, but not least. Your study abroad trip will surely be one of the richest experiences of your life. More than learning a new language, you will get to know a lot of different cultures, you will have a new routine, far from your family and friends, but close to yourself and the world. It is important to be clear in your head that it is not so easy to live this way, there are moments when missing your country becomes very strong, or when you feel very alone. But there’s nothing to be afraid of. That’s also part of that incredible experience. You have to live it and always be open to know and be more enchanted with the world.
