Academic Preparation

A few points to keep in mind:

  1. The general educational expectations are the same abroad as on‑campus
  2. Each professor has different expectations and methods of evaluation
  3.  Your classes will be taught by:
  • CSB/SJU faculty,
  • Professors from foreign universities
  • Scholars from the host community

Remember that this is a STUDY abroad experience. One of the greatest challenges for students is remembering that NOT ALL education systems are the same throughout the world. You may find that your grade abroad is based on a mid-term exam, a major research paper, and your final exam. That is quite different than the myriad of quizzes, papers, tests and mid-term/final exams you have at CSB/SJU.
