One-third of students go abroad
Miami reports that 33.3 percent of its undergraduate students study abroad by the time of their graduation – the same percentage as the previous year.
This fall’s Open Doors 2007 report by the Institute for International Education (IIE) shows 1,422 undergraduates and graduates were enrolled in study abroad programs for the 2005-06 academic year. Miami’s goal is to increase those numbers so that half of Miami’s graduates study abroad.
The IIE ranked Miami 24th nationally among doctoral/research universities in 2005-06 for the total number of students abroad, and 29th nationally for the estimated percentage of undergraduate students studying abroad by graduation. In a new comparison by the IIE, Miami ranked 12th nationally for the greatest number of students studying abroad on short-term (eight weeks or less) programs.
Starting next fall, students can apply Miami’s scholarships (but not Ohio Leader Scholarships or Ohio Resident Scholarships) and federal financial aid to co-sponsored programs with other study abroad providers through a new co-sponsored agreement with Miami. Programs include locations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, South America and Asia.
