Visiting Your Son/Daughter
If you want to visit your son or daughter overseas (and we hope some of you do), it would help if you could arrange your visit to coincide with vacation times or after the program has ended. Then your son or daughter does not have to make the difficult choice between academic work and having fun showing you how competent he or she has become in a new environment. Many families find reading about the overseas location to be both interesting and a good way to feel more in touch with the experience of their student.
Please keep in mind that those programs that require students to live with a host family, usually do not allow students to have visitors stay with them in their home. Visiting your son/daughter on one of these programs is possible, but parents and any other visitors will need to secure their own accommodation.
