Tips for writing the Education Abroad ACE 9 essay that should be submitted with the completion form
- The student should reflect on just one specific issue, rather than several issues.
- The issue does not necessarily have to be something the student personally encountered or that personally affected the student’s daily life abroad. It could be something that the student observed, discussed, read about, etc. If the student does choose to address a personal issue, the student should connect it to a larger issue affecting the citizens of the host country.
- While the reflection need not be an extensive research paper, doing some light research may help the student analyze the issue beyond the student’s own knowledge, perspective, and opinion.
