What advice do you have for study abroad students?

GO! It is definitely an experience of a lifetime that you will never regret; so don’t let doubt or fear of the unknown hinder you in any way. Your experience is definitely what you make it, so go in with an open mind, fully embrace the culture and the people and let them show you the beauty of their country. You will be able to experience a culture new to you so fully immerse yourself in it! You will make heaps of friends and memories that will last far beyond your 5 or so months abroad.
