Study Abroad “Old School”: Re-Discovering University Study Programs Abroad
Fifteen years ago, more than half of students who went abroad did so on semester-long programs. Today it’s just one-third. And of those students, fewer and fewer are choosing integrated University Study programs, where students take classes alongside local students and are treated as regular students at a foreign university.
With the rise of home-grown programs and affiliate center-based options, the University Study model has become an afterthought, even though older generations of students knew it as one of the only ways to go abroad.
