Studying abroad is one of the most formative, confidence-building, and all-around incredible experiences any young person can hope to have. Perhaps you've toyed with the idea of a semester in Europe, are considering a work–study program in Australia, or dream of years of concentrated research in a foreign locale. Maybe you've always wanted to travel but aren't ready to do it alone, or maybe you need some kind of structure before you step off the plane into brand new territory.
Student exchanges and international programs are a fantastic way to expose yourself to the world around you, gain first-hand experience in a foreign culture, and challenge yourself to do things you don't even know you're capable of yet—but they allow you to do so without the responsibility of having to plan every aspect yourself.
But here's the big question: where should you go? There's literally a whole world out there, and having so many options can sometimes make you feel like you have no options at all. To take the pressure off, we've devised a short quiz to recommend a student-friendly community based on your personality, preferences, and area of study.
