Many of you enroll into our program and come prepared to begin your academic studies and culture experience. However, from our experience, a lot of you do not know where to begin with your basic and essential needs.
Please see below our suggestions and resources we have pulled for you. We hope you can find most of your answers on this page, but if don’t, you are welcomed to contact New Oasis for any additional questions/answers. Don’t forget, your host parents may have the answers to many of the questions that you may have as well. Our host parents are always willing to help, so please ask them too.
