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.
