In recent years, the number of American students studying abroad has continued to rise in number; but who exactly are these students taking advantage of international education opportunities?
BestCollegesOnline.com recently compiled a detailed infographic that breaks down the who, what, and where of these particular students. They also note that during the 2009-2010 academic year, 270,604 American students studied abroad for credit. This is nearly double the number of students studying abroad from 2000-2001 -- as reported by the Institute of International Education (IIE)-- demonstrating the increasing value of international education, and how it helps students to become more active global citizens.
Take a look at the infographic below (click to enlarge the image) and let us know what you think about these numbers in the comments below. You can also explore GoAbroad.com for even more study abroad opportunities!
