Tip for studying overseas

Part one

Being surrounded by an unfamiliar1 culture, environment and social norms, while being away from family and friends, is something which more and more Chinese students experience in the quest to gain a western education.

based on my experience, the following five steps may prove useful in assisting prospective2 overseas students in their preparations to study overseas.

Get to know your new home before you land in it .

There is no substitute for good preparation. Arm yourself with background knowledge by researching information about the country you are going to. Learning about the history, culture, tradition, language and even details such as food, music, transport, weather and social activities of your new host country are all important. Thanks to the Internet, most of this can be found at the click of a button.

Attitude is everything.

Don't underestimate the power of the mind in determining how events turn out. Decide how to approach any situation, before you are placed in it. Positive thoughts about your new circumstances and a positive attitude toward your new home and hosts will bring positive results.

Alternately, many people set themselves up for failure simply by talking themselves out of success. Don't sabotage3 your chances at being happy and successful in your future study and new life before they have even started. Maintain focus on one or two major goals (not too many) and work steadily4 and gradually towards these.

Pack using your head and your heart.

It's not easy being practical when deciding what to pack and there is always that temptation to bring cherished personal belongings5 such as books, letters or fluffy6 toys. Whatever you bring, make sure that is will be something that you think might help your chances of succeeding.

This includes practical items such as study materials, old class notes, favorite textbooks or pens and even the contact details of previous teachers. It might also include some small luxuries such as study music or well-packaged snack foods. Items of sentimental7 value such as a flipbook with photographs of family and friends or a favorite item of clothing can help you feel closer to home.
