One of the first impressions that students have of TCWW is our service-oriented attitude towards study abroad. We are here
to help each student throughout the entire study abroad process. From a student's initial contact with a TCWW
representative, we hope that he or she will quickly realize how important each individual is to us. We take each student's
requests very seriously, and we are able to be flexible in order to meet his or her specific needs.
TCWW believes that by studying abroad, students not only witness another culture, but they also experience the culture by
living a new way of life. We hope that students will gain a cultural understanding and personal independence that can only be
achieved by living and studying in another country. Furthermore, we hope that students will continue to reap the benefits of
study abroad by encouraging cultural understanding in their own communities. We recognize that this enlightening experience
is becoming an increasingly precious asset as we encourage our students to become sensitive, responsible and contributing
members of today's expanding global community.
TCWW provided me unique guidance and support from application origination to enrollment. The support throughout was
unprecedented. I am so glad I chose TCWW as my program of study has pushed me as a student to get out of my comfort
zone to experience another culture, language, environment and education system. TCWW support during the course of my
study and weekend Global Connect Program (GCP) has taught me to appreciate difference and diversity firsthand and helped
me immensely in all around development.
The Global Connect Program
The Global Connect Program (GCP) encompasses the TCWW on-site orientation delivered to all students in the first days of
their arrival into the new country. The purpose of the program is to work individually with students to identify areas of key
improvement related to s goal setting, intercultural awareness, diversity and professional development. For a number of
reasons, the first days that follow a students arrival on site offer us some of the best opportunities to effectively transmit
information to the students.. While the pre-departure orientations that students receive from TCWW staff are also important,
students are typically more ready to focus on their study abroad experience when they arrive at their host country. The GCP is
designed to help TCWW make the most of this important opportunity to educate students, and to give students the tools that
will facilitate discovery and learning during their program. The GCP is an important introduction to a new culture, a new home
and a new experience. The BCP is designed to prepare students for a successful, positive and rewarding experience that will
influence the rest of their lives.
