Exams, course registration, and libraries may not be the first things that come to mind when you think about exchange (though we hope they are!) but studying abroad is kind of in the name. IPO staff know that research into academic offerings and environments at partner universities can be hard to tackle or is overlooked, yet finding an academic match is essential to success on program.
