Academic Year Abroad, 1995/96. The Most Complete Guide to Planning Academic Year Study Abroad. 24th Edition.
Steen, Sara J., Ed.
This guide provides descriptions of 2,250 study-abroad programs that take place during the academic year (usually September through June) and that are at least one academic quarter in length (usually 8 to 10 weeks). An introductory section provides information on the Institute of International Education (IIE), IIE publications, use of the guide, planning study abroad, and how to read study-abroad literature. The bulk of the guide consists of individual program descriptions, arranged geographically by region and country. Each listing provides information on program sponsor and name, site, dates, subjects offered, eligibility requirements, academic credit offered, language and type of instruction, costs, housing, application deadline, other information, and contact point. Approximately 75 percent of the programs listed are sponsored by U.S. accredited colleges and universities. Programs are indexed by sponsoring institution, consortia, fields of study, special options, and cost ranges. An appendix contains statistics on study abroad. (MDM)
