The experience of studying abroad has many benefits for students. According to a survey done by the Institute for International Education of Students, 97 percent of students who were surveyed admitted that studying abroad helped increase maturity and 95 percent said it had a lasting impact on their worldview. Before any student should jump into traveling abroad there are some things you need to prepare for. One of the many things is knowing your locations and keeping track of your money, especially when having to change currency. “Many colleges and universities in the U.S. make it so that students do not have to worry about money on a daily basis during their undergraduate career,” says Jarlath McGuckin, an enrollment manager for Council on International Educational Exchange.
