Finances not top concern for study-abroad leaders, survey finds

April 2, 2012

According to a new survey from the US-based Forum on Education Abroad, money is not the chief concern of study-abroad leaders. Respondents, who work in campus study-abroad offices or for program providers, cited students' ability to integrate into another culture as their top concern, followed by student preparation and helping students maximize their experience overseas. Program costs and the need for further financial support, which had ranked highest on previous surveys, were the fourth- and fifth-greatest issues. The Chronicle of Higher Education (free access)
