“Finally a book that has the information that a TCK (Third Culture Kid) needs to prepare well for moving to the States (or Canada) for university! This book is not only well written but has lots of practical advice for both the teenager who is moving as well as their parents. I work with TCKs & this transition can usually be one of the toughest I see them go through… but this book I believe will make a difference. If you know a TCK who is about to move across the ocean for University – buy this book!

About the Book | The Review
“Author, Tina Quick, speaks in simple, practical steps, reinforcing complicated or abstract concepts with application or a recommended direct action. Only a few pages pass at a time without a tip, a piece of easy advice, or a reassuring nudge forward – making it a perfect resource for attention-strapped students, or a quick reference for those in a hurry.”
About the Book | Full Review
There are books for just about every stage of the expat lifecycle: books for those who are thinking about moving abroad, for those who are already expats and trying to make sense of their worlds, for those who are raising Third Culture Kids, for those who are considering retiring abroad, and for those who are struggling with re-entry.
In The Global Nomad’s Guide to University Transition Tina L. Quick gives practical advice to help TCK students and their parents successfully negotiate the transition to college. A parent of three college-aged TCKs, Quick believes that when families anticipate and understand the challenges that lie ahead, most notably the different stages of transition, the student’s college transition will be much smoother.
