don't just follow any direction. Make a plan
pertaining to the universities you would
like to join. Do some studying, find out if
they are offering the programs you wish to
pursue. Choosing your majors and electives
can be a tough job if you don't know what
kind of orientation you have in your career.
The Internet is a brilliant place to start
your search, when looking for a particular
program try and look for the following
» Time-length of program

to decide if the choice you are about to

and your financial standing.

best direction talk to your parents, your
schoolteachers or to a career counselor so
you know your proper direction.

make a copy of the front page that has all
your identification information, and keep it
in a separate place from your passport. If
your passport is lost or stolen, the copy
will make it easier to get a new one.

if your country of destination requires a
visa. If so what kind of visa will you need?

countries. Apply early for visas. Processing
time varies widely.

shots from the prescribed doctor and your
medical checkup done.

the help of your student ID card. Getting an
International calling card is not such a bad
idea, keep it for emergency purposes. Plan
