On behalf of StudyAbroad Webinars, we understand that acquiring the right information to make your decision to study abroad requires immense time, effort and dedication. Universities often don’t publish information related to the availability of support services, financial aids students can apply for, and the job opportunities once you graduate, and thus makes it difficult for students such as yourself to make the best StudyAbroad decision.
