Review quote

'It addresses all the key areas that students need to think about and with the level of detail that it is impossible to achieve through the briefing sessions, preparatory meetings and documentation most study abroad offices provide.' - Dr Caroline Whitehand, University of Manchester, UK 'As an advisor of students interested in studying abroad I can hear in the authors' writing the experience they bring to this book and that is important to writing in this area as it tries to reach students.' - Suying Hugh, University of Toronto, Canada 'A final note to the authors - well done! You've nailed the tone of it - it is spot on for students. The practicality of the guide - with the checklists, questions, tips, heads-ups etc - is fantastic. Something that will be really useful to most students who are heading 'out there'.' - Rob Malicki, Macquarie University, Australia
