How do you prepare for the UF study abroad programs?

UF study abroad offers are a great opportunity to visit another country and change your life for a little while. I’ve seen a couple of programs that would be ideal for me. However, I hope you can give me good tips on how to prepare for it, what to expect, and how to make sure you get it. Is study abroad for free possible? What documents do I need to prepare? Most of all, I’d like to study medicine abroad. I know that this field is very demanding. So, I’m not really sure it is among their offers. Is it available?

Yes, University of Florida offers great programs. I was lucky to use one of them myself. The options are great and the experience you get is very valuable for your adult life. Living in a foreign country teaches you to make decisions for yourself and find a solution to any problem. In addition, you get amazing friends and meet people that are so cool you cannot even imagine what is going on in their heads. It is a great way to learn your faults and borrow some useful quirks from other cultures. Be sure to choose a place that suits your climate preferences. I went to a sunny place and cannot imagine how distracted and depressed I would be in a misty London, for example.

The University of Florida study abroad programs are diverse. I’ve heard that it encompasses about 1000 programs. I’m sure those options that have sparked your interest are amazing. I hope you’ve seen the whole list of offers. In case you need to take another look, here is a search page that will help: https://www.abroad.ufic.ufl.edu/index.cfm?FuseAction=Programs.SimpleSearch  I’m sure you’ll be surprised when you open the “City” field and find so many options there. You can also choose any term you want from a short summer visit to a full academic year. UF abroad scholarships mean that there are many ways to get the program. Now you know that abroad studies for free are possible.  You can use your existing scholarship and any other form of financial aid for abroad studies.

To apply, you should log in to the website using your username and password. Click the name of the program you choose and fill in the application page. Carefully read the documents and sign them electronically, complete the questionnaire, and submit payment of the application deposit. Voila! It’s done—your application will be processed. Note that if you are a minor, a signature of your parents will be asked for. You can either send the signed form by fax or scan and email it.

All in all, the application process is fast and easy. I believe that if you have a dream, you can reach it. Studying abroad is one of those dreams that UF can help you with. If you are looking for abroad medicine studies, you can discover a few options with UF. It offers programs in Switzerland, Holland, Germany, France, and China. Make your pick.

Medicine is a great choice for the UF abroad studies. Though it is complex and demanding, each country has its own secrets and methods used in medicine. I’m sure that you will learn many new things that are unheard of in the U.S. I think that diversity of views is the main skill of a medical worker.

So, to make your search a little bit faster, I’ve found a great guide for you - https://www.findlay.edu/intranet/Offices/international-education/Documents/Study%20Abroad%20Handbook_update.pdf This is a handbook that answers all basic questions of the UF abroad programs. It tells you all the things you need to know before the departure. It helps you to prepare for the life in another country. One part of the book even dwells on the peculiarities of the cultures and how to behave. Another part describes the period during your stay. Those small tips can really save your nerves and some money in difficult situations.

Enjoy the read!
