For Parents & Families

parent adStudying abroad is a rewarding opportunity and we hope you will encourage your student to participate in one of our exciting programs. Choosing to study abroad is one of the best decisions a student can make for their personal and academic development. By participating in study abroad, students gain knowledge and experience that can't be taught in the classroom. This is a chance for your student to grow as an individual and to obtain a unique understanding of the world and its abundant array of cultures.

Parents and families play a significant role in the study abroad process.  We want every student's study abroad endeavor to be both educationally and personally rewarding; we do everything we can to meet these expectations, but your participation is invaluable. Please talk with your student about study abroad.

The Parent/Family's Role in Study Abroad
Parents form an integral part of the study abroad experience by supporting their student's choice to embark on this academic and life-enriching endeavor.  Here are some specific ways to show support and be involved in the process:

  • Make sure your student's visa paperwork is in order.

  • Assist with flight arrangements.

  • Develop a plan for handling family emergencies that may arise while your student is abroad.

Besides reading through our website in its entirety, ask your student to review his or her Pre-Departure handbook and other materials which are available to them via our on-line system.  While UNT cannot grant you access, many of the items can be printed out by students, so be sure you stay up-to-date with your student and the process.
