Managing your money, accessing funds, and how much money you will spend while off-campus will very much vary depending on where you go, how much you travel and go out, and the local financial systems in the country in which you are studying. Your program will provide information on managing these matters safely as well as what may be included in your program fee. We also recommend reading program evaluations or contacting past student participants.
