College-Bound Students' Interests in Study Abroad and Other International Learning Activities

The American Council on Education, the Art & Science Group and the College Board recently released a report entitled College-Bound Students' Interests in Study Abroad and Other International Learning Activities. Key findings from the report demonstrate student interest in international learning:

55% indicate that they are certain or fairly certain they will participate in study abroad, with another 26% indicating a strong desire to study abroad.

35% plan to participate in an international internship.

37% are very interested in acquiring career-related work experience in another country.

Of those students planning to study abroad, more than 70% plan to become proficient in a second language or learn enough of the language to be able to converse with people who speak that foreign language.

The full report is available on the American Council on Education website at:
