Links to Information about Living and Working Abroad These links were found and described by Ms. Samantha Wood, who gave permission for them to be published here. She expressed the hope that they would be useful to other Winthrop students. http://www.expatriates.com/ Lists different countries includes nothing about culture but the site is more about finding a job or apartment overseas, a good resource if trying to gage cost of living and housing market. Be careful when looking at housing prices of housing that requires key money in some locations (Korea, Asia or where housing is at a premium) it tends to be two years of rent up front in most cases. http://www.expatexchange.com/ Is by far my favorite site you can find out about international schools, moving to the locations, and they have forums to discuss topics, as well as you can sign on and meet people before you move, also they have travel warnings for the area. http://www.expatsite.com/homepage/index1.php3 Is a good site for larger countries. Includes economic and political outlooks, visas and permits, banking, housing, transportation, education, safety, health care, and ex pat social life. http://www.orientexpat.com/ Expatriate advice and information for those living in East Asia. http://www.liveabroad.com/ Offers information on living costs, international travel, and residency requirements for those seeking to live, retire, study, work, or volunteer abroad.
