I'm planning on studying abroad in France, my junior year of college.
it would be in Pau, France.
Or...somewhere else in France, but I'm not sure yet where.

bumping. i guess. it's been 7 months.

anyway i really wanted to go to sweden during my junior year in high school, which is next year, but between my parents not wanting me to and my school being like 'you cannot graduate if you go blah blah blah blah' i didn't

the second excuse bothers me because 1. you can get 8 credits a year, i only need 7 more to graduate. the only thing special i would have to do is take 11th and 12th grade english at the same time and 2. there are like three people going to germany next year...

anyway i now plan to go to sweden the year after high school, which i think once i get there would be better. i'd be eighteen and that actually has practical benefits as well as more fun ones

and i still want to do it in university as well, but i don't know what country because i don't know where i'm going, obviously

Pmplmus617, perhaps it might just be best to wait until after high school, that way you can have more fun
Anyways... I've been planing ever since I was little to study abroad in college however I haven't narrowed down where I would like to study. I have a few options and ideas but input from others would be great.
1) England- My dream would be to study at Oxford for a year (my college has a program with the uni) however, I really don't know how hard it is to get into the study abroad program (I am a Journalism major). Does anyone have any idea? Although if I couldn't study at Oxford I've thought about studying at a uni in London. I really love England, I've always wanted to live in the UK and studying abroad here could give me a chance too.
2) Israel- This is probably the most extreme country on my list however I have ties to the country and would love the chance to study their. Also so I can practice my Hebrew which right now is pretty non-existant since I haven't studied the language in so long.
3) Australia- I've always wanted to go Australia and I figure a year studying abroad in the country might be nice. I really like the idea of being in an English speaking country seeing as thats the only language I speak fluently (although like I said before, I know some Hebrew) and Australia also looks like a really cool place.
So any suggestions? Or do you think I should study somewhere else? This advice would be very much appricated!

As someone who is trying to figure out where to study abroad as well the advice I've herd the most from others is to go somewhere that really interests you and you will get a lot out of the experience. I know this advice probably isn't the easiest to use, its hard to figure it out, but perhaps writing down all the pros and cons of each place might help you figure it out as well. Hope that helps a little bit!

I would love to study in New York, but the costs are skyhigh comparing to Dutch school costs!

It sounds obvious to choose a place that interests you, but it really is good advice. Don't just base your decision no what your school or others recommend. For instance, I was told that Milan would be the best choice for me consider my major (fashion merchandising), but I really wanted to go to Rome. I went with my own interests and don't regret it for a minute!

I have this "dream" to study in Stockholm. I don't know what exactly (sure I have some ideas otherwise it would not make any sense) but does anybody on here have experiences studying in Stockholm? I'm German by the way and only speak very lite lite svenska.

Thanks Julesrule815 for the advice, I think a lot of people only listen to what advisors tell you to do, not follow their own interests, even if it differs from the norm. Since I am a journalism major I feel their are so many places I could study abroad, which does make it difficult to narrow down my choices! However, right now my heart is pulling me towards studying in England. Their are so many pros on my list; great uni's, great location, fantastic shopping and tourism sites, friendly people, London, close to my family, birthplace of much of the English language as we know it, ect. So I most likely will study some where within England although you never know, I do change my mind a lot!

So... I think this thread needs to be revived again! I think I've narrowed down what country I'm going to study in; England. However, I am debating between what uni's to apply too. My school has a program with Oxford and Cambridge so I was wondering if you could weigh the pros and cons of the school (I'm a journalism major with a minor in international relations). Also I can study at other schools besides those two and I was thinking Central St. Martins since I know the London College of Communication is affiliated with the school. So what school do you think is best for a journalism major? Or do you suggest that I look at other schools in England? Thanks for your help!

If I were you, I think I would take classes not directly helpful towards your minor. Like, humanities credits. You want to make sure the credits transfer so if you take a class that wasn't as important for your major, then you have nothing to worry about.

I will be speaking with a lady on Tuesday about studying over in Spain in the spring! VERY EXCITED.

^Good idea... its probably best to do take classes related to humanities credits rather then specific classes for my major. Thats why I figure I could study at either Oxford or Cambridge without any problems. They may not have my major but they have a lot of classes which I could take (plus how awesome would it be to go to either school?!).
Thats so exciting Papa Levante! Spain would be an amazing place to study (if only I could speak the language!)...
