Not sure how to phrase this right, but I’m not a very independent person at home (I rely alot on my parents and maid). I heard that while on exchange, you have to count on yourself for alot of things and the prospect is honestly quite scary. Is there any way I can prep myself before hand? Or anything I should look out for?
Due to some family matters, I will miss the orientation programme organized by my exchange university, and I’ll only be able to reach the university 1 week into the semester. Do you think it’s still advisable to proceed with the exchange programme? As I have heard the orientation period is extremely important for foreign students.
