Problems When Studying Abroad, Anticipated & Real

A. J. Lawson, J. B. Charles

NIC International College in Japan, Japan

Even the most confident Japanese student is likely to be nervous about several aspects of life during an extended period of study in a foreign country. Health, safety, diet, housing, language and loneliness are just a few of such worries. Do such fears prove to be well-founded or is the reality often different? Do home institutions do enough to help students prepare? This presentation introduces initial findings of a long-term study into the discrepancy between students’ prime concerns prior to studying abroad, and the main issues and problems they actually encounter during their overseas experience.
