Steen, Sara J., Ed.; Battle, Ed, Ed.
This directory provides information on summer higher education programs ranging from 1 week to several months, and on short courses of varying lengths in the fall, winter, and spring that take place in countries other than the United States. An introductory section describes the organization of the listings, which provide program sponsor and name, location, dates, fields of study, eligibility, credit, instruction, costs, housing, deadline, and contact information. 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; finances; travel and living (laws and customs, accommodations, passports, visas, vaccinations, medical insurance, other health concerns, and transportation); and programs administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE). Program listings are arranged by the following regions: worldwide; Africa; South of the Sahara; Asia and Oceania; Eastern Europe; Western Europe; Middle East and North Africa; and the Western Hemisphere. Six indexes provide listings of sponsoring institutions, consortia, fields of study, special options, cost ranges, and duration. (LPT)
