This friendly, accessible guide provides international students with fifty practical 'Ways' to help them make the most of their experience overseas. Each of the fifty 'Ways' in this book is a starting point, offering suggestions of things to do and think about, alongside opportunities to reflect on, choose and commit to new ideas and actions. Spanning the whole international student journey, it will help students to recognise potential challenges, connect with other students and take action that will prepare them for life after their study abroad adventure.
This is an ideal resource for any student who wants to make the most of their time studying overseas.
