Summary

This directory of study-abroad programs provides information on over 1,500 postsecondary study programs that take place in countries other than the United States during the academic year. An introductory section describes the organization of the listings (which provide program sponsor and name, location, dates, subjects, credit, eligibility, instruction, highlights, costs, housing, deadline and contact). A chapter on planning for study abroad discusses: researching the options (language proficiency, geographic location, the third world, disabled students, and adult learners); educational choices (types of programs, sponsorship by consortia, direct enrollment, vacation study programs, internships, and voluntary service projects); finances (scholarships and work abroad); travel and living (laws and customs; accommodations; passports, visas and vaccinations; medical insurance and other health concerns; and transportation); and programs administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE). Program listings are divided into two major sections: programs sponsored by accredited U.S. colleges and universities; and programs sponsored by non-U.S. colleges and universities, language schools, and other U.S. and foreign organizations. Within each section, program listings are divided into the following categories: worldwide; Africa, south of the Sahara; Asia and Oceania; Europe; Middle East and North Africa; and the Western Hemisphere. Two appendices provide a list of consortia and a summary of the U.S. study-abroad census. Two indexes, by sponsoring institution and by field of study, conclude the book. (KM)
