Writing Guidelines

*Your report should be directed at all readers, not just those in your particular field.

*Although we would like to hear about the research conducted, we are most interested in your reflections on your experiences abroad.


1. Background Information

This may be similar to what you provided in your proposal.


2. What is the purpose of your research and how will it contribute to your field of study?


3. What was your methodology and was it carried out as originally planned? If not, why? How did you adjust for the change in plans?


4. What sort of results did you see from your research and what can you conclude from them?


5. Most importantly, how did you benefit from your experience abroad? 

What did you learn about the culture of the country you visited?  What did you experience while abroad that was most memorable?  What was it like doing research in a foreign environment?  Were there noticeable differences in the field of research abroad than what you have experienced at the University of Kentucky?  Was it more or less expensive than doing research in the United States?  This could relate not only to money, but human resources (e.g., your time or availability of research materials and resources).
