    The internet is always a good and easy source to find more info on the country you are studying abroad in. I would also suggest speaking to students who have studied abroad in the country you are interested in going to and have a list of questions ready to ask them. Important things to know are local foods, local means of transportation, language spoken, economic status, etc. You can also always go to the study abroad office and they will be more than happy to give you more info.

    If your university has a study abroad office, you can start there. Otherwise it is always a good idea to see whether the country has an embassy or consulate in the US. If so, you could take a look at their website, which usually offers useful information.

    Your school’s study abroad office will have a lot of information about the particular country you plan to study in, but start doing your own research too. You can easily get information online, at the library, or contact other students (through your study abroad office) who have participated in the same program previously. Sometimes, students keep blogs of their travels, so you may be able to find some of those online as well.
