More and more college students are studying abroad every year. During the 2017-2018 academic year 341,751 students studied abroad for a portion of the year. The fastest growing segment of students studying abroad is made up of those participating in short-term study abroad.
But perhaps your student is not interested in a short-term or even a semester study abroad experience. Another option is that of earning your entire bachelor’s degree overseas. The number of students who complete their entire degree program in another country is approximately 72% higher than it was 20 years ago. If your student is considering an overseas degree, they may be in good company.
Why consider fully attending college abroad?
Although it may be difficult to think about your student being so far away, attending college abroad may make sense for some students.
Many schools in other countries are highly regarded and ranked. If you examine worldwide college rankings, many schools abroad rank higher than many U.S. schools.
