Year of Publication: 

What impact does study abroad have on the academic, working, and personal lives of students? BCCIE has undertaken a research project surveying study abroad participants to assess the impact of study abroad experiences. The study answers questions such as: why students think study abroad is important; what knowledge skills and abilities students develop as a result of their experience; and, what impact the experience has had on students’ academic, work, and personal lives.
