International study is no longer the reserve of the privileged few: every year more and more students are choosing courses abroad. In 2016, over 300,000 students from the US chose university courses abroad, and around one million people from other countries chose the US as their place of study.
Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) is a non-for-profit which offers study abroad programmes in over 40 countries. Jean-Philippe Primout and Linda Rimal Ponte are responsible for student life and operations at CIEE in Paris. They explain their roles and tell us about the value of international study.
