The Goethe Institut is such a wonderful institution! It offers a truly unique experience by merging language learning and cultural excursions, while introducing students to both local and international students. It's an amazing feeling to share a second language as a commonality.

student handbook

Upon acceptance into one of Central College Abroad’s eight study abroad programs, every student is provided a program specific “student survival guide”. This guide provides practical planning information, useful tips and general guidelines which help students understand their role as study abroad participants. Upon enrollment into a program, Central College Abroad also mails the students’ study abroad advisers a copy of the program specific “student survival guide” to assist them as they prepare their students for successful study abroad experiences.

We invite you to use our "sample student survival guide" as a resource. The guide is from Central College Abroad’s program in Bangor, Wales.

Each guide includes a program specific section, as well as a general section; therefore, some information found in the guide will be specific to Bangor only.
