Giovanangeli, Angela; Allatson, Paul – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2022
Research into university study abroad programs suggests that while students may have some experience of local culture(s) and practices, they may be achieving no more than a superficial understanding of the host society.

Simopoulou, Zoi; Willis, Alette; Georgiadou, Lorena – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2022
Opportunities for working, volunteering, and studying abroad have become popular in higher education as vehicles for the development of cultural awareness and global citizenship.

Whalen, Brian; Woolf, Michael – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2020

Woolf, Michael – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2020
