Despite the difficult economic situation, more U.S. students are studying abroad now than ever before. There are nearly a quarter of a million Americans studying overseas, an increase of nearly 150% compared with students who studied abroad a decade ago, according to the Institute of International Education’s Open Doors 2008. Not only are more students going abroad, but there is also a significant increase in students seeking non-traditional study abroad destinations in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
