How to Design a Successful Study Abroad Program Camille Serchuk firstname.lastname@example.org
Planning • Supply and Demand • Logistics • Calendar • Budgeting • Recruiting and Admissions • Preparing to Go • Your trip • After your return
Supply and Demand • What would you like to do? • Have you participated in study abroad before? • Where are your connections? • Do you speak the local language? • What would best serve your program? • What is the audience for your course(s)? • How many faculty can your program support?
Logistics • Where will your students stay? • Where will they eat? • Where will your classes meet? • Are you using the resources of another institution? • What documents will facilitate your access to sites? • Will you travel once you arrive? How? • Are reservations necessary for visits?
Calendar • Writing and submitting a proposal • When do you want to go? Summer? Wintersession? Spring Break? For how long? • Program calendar (itinerary, credit hours, contact hours, local holidays) • Admissions calendar • Payment calendar (Airfare, housing, other reservations that require payment in advance)
Budgeting • Cost of travel, food, housing, visits, classroom • Faculty costs • Course costs (SCSU or host institution) • Anticipating currency fluctuation • Financial Aid • P-card
Recruiting and Admissions • Recruiting • Brochures and posters • Information sessions • Applications and deadlines (What do you want to know? What do you need to know?) • How many is enough? Too many?
Preparing to go • Helping students know what to expect while traveling • Teaching students appropriate conduct abroad • Safety and other practical matters • Student medical forms • Setting the tone • Preparing course materials in advance
Your trip • Local arrangements • Getting the most from your locale • Staying safe • Encouraging independence, within boundaries • When students travel on their own • Morale, homesickness • What can go wrong and how to deal with it
Returning home • Paperwork and finances • Getting student help to recruit and advise students in the future • Using information to better plan and budget in the future
Know yourself • 24/7 responsibility, as parent, travel agent, concierge, social worker, translator and shopping advisor, IT support, banker. • Not a time to do research • Not a lot of down time • Every step is your responsibility
