Studying abroad has many appealing benefits for students who take part as well as for institutions who offer these kinds of programs. There are many factors that come into play when thinking about studying abroad: where to travel to; what type of credit (if any) will be earned; how much will it cost; what gains are expected from travelling.
In 2014, the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) conducted a survey to gauge the interaction of Canadian universities in internationalization, as defined in the AUCC survey as “institutional efforts to integrate an international, global and/or intercultural dimension into the teaching, research and service functions of universities.”
Since the last study of this kind was conducted in 2006, the AUCC felt it was time to reassess the commitment and interest of Canadian Universities when it came to internationalization. Check out the infographic below for some quick but impactful stats found in the survey.
