We would like to thank you for supporting your student's decision to study abroad. We encourage you to learn about the various aspects of study abroad at Northwestern, including our policies and procedures, financial considerations, the patterns of cultural adjustment, and health and safety abroad so that you can help your student as he or she embarks on this journey.
We have put together this guide as a source of information for you as your student navigates the study abroad process; however, it is important that you let them take primary responsibility for planning their experience.
In this guide you will find information about:
- Importance of an international education
- Study abroad options
- Important academic, safety and financial considerations
- Frequently asked questions
We wish you all the best during this exciting time in your student's life!
