Study Abroad always goes by fast, even if you’re abroad for a semester or a full academic year. During summer, when you might be abroad for only four or six weeks, you blink and it’s time to go home. Setting some personal and academic goals is a way to figure out what you really want from your experience and then help focus your time and energy on achieving it.

If language proficiency is your top priority, for example, then set some relevant goals. Select a program that offers intensive language courses, commit to going to a certain number of language exchange meetings or finding a language partner, or aspire to interact with at least one stranger in your second language each day. Do the same for any other priorities you may have for while you’re abroad.

Setting goals can give you razor sharp vision and help you get what you want out of your summer abroad. Don’t go home with any regrets!
