Developing a realistic budget for your semester or year abroad will assure that you maintain the funds to last throughout your study abroad experience. In addition to reviewing the study abroad program cost, it is important to prioritize your additional personal expenses, including optional excursions, independent travel and other social activities. The Study Abroad Budget Worksheet is designed to help you estimate the costs of your study abroad experience.
Please note that the additional expenses, other than the standard program fee, vary greatly based on individual student expectations, the cost of living in your host city, and the exchange rate. It is important to research the cost of living in your host city and country to effectively budget for optional excursions, independent travel, and other social activities.
We recommend contacting recent study abroad returnees to gather additional information on realistic budget expectations.
