ranks third nationwide among public doctoral universities for undergraduate
student participation in study abroad programs.
The results of the
just-released Open Doors 2013 report by the Institute of International
Education are based on figures from the 2011-2012 academic year.
About 38 percent of
Miami undergraduate students study abroad by the time they graduate. Miami also
ranks 23 nationwide among all universities for total number of students, both
undergraduate and graduate, for study abroad participation.
Top destinations for
Miami students include Luxembourg, the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain and China.
The majority of students go abroad on one of Miami's faculty-led programs. Of
the 1,797 students who studied abroad last year, 1,337 were in Miami programs.
Unique to Miami is
the operation of a campus in Luxembourg. Last year, 225 students enrolled at
the Miami University John E. Dolibois European Center (MUDEC) in Luxembourg.
In addition to the
Luxembourg campus, Miami students can apply their scholarships and federal
financial aid to sponsored, exchanged or co-sponsored programs with other,
non-Miami semester study abroad providers.
Miami offers more
than 350 co-sponsored programs that permit scholarship transfer, and airfare
grants are available to students with financial need.
Many of Miami's study
abroad options are offered through the study
in Miami's Global Initiatives department.
