Congratulations on your decision to study abroad! While you have worked hard to get into your program of study, you are not done yet. Now start the preparations for life abroad. Let the Freeman Abroad Handbook be your guide as it contains general information you will need before you leave Tulane, during your stay abroad, and as you prepare to return to Tulane. We expect you to not only read this handbook carefully, but to also be proactive and do your own research before you travel, as well as utilize Tulane’s resources and student services for more information.

The experience of living abroad in another country as a learner will be of tremendous value to you from every point of view. Culturally, linguistically, personally, and intellectually, you will grow. You will have the chance to go beyond sightseeing, and become acquainted with another country, another culture, and other people. Allow the influence of your study abroad experience to guide you in a positive direction.

We hope the following pages will help you adapt more quickly to life abroad. Once you arrive, you will have many questions. We may not have all the answers, but we will do what we can to help you find them. Meanwhile, this handbook should serve as a personal reference tool during your stay.

We wish you the very best for a rewarding international experience!
