Final comments
Before going anywhere, do your search and collect information on all aspects of the student and non-student life in the destination country. Arrange your accomodation and your finance before arriving in he country. Try to learn the language at least to an intermidiate level. Always generate contacts even e-contacts as difficult situations may arise and you may need help. Don't always count on family. Prepare yourself to be completely independent. Don't forget to enjoy life as life is too short.
