The 20 most popular colleges for studying abroad

Hundreds of thousands of college students set off on journeys around the world every semester to study, research, intern, and explore. Many return home with a new perspective, or even a yearning to go back.

The Princeton Review recently released its 2016 college rankings, which included a ranking of the 20 most popular study abroad programs in the country.

To compile this list, The Princeton Review asked 136,000 students at 380 colleges "How much do you agree/disagree with the statement 'Studying abroad is popular at my college'?" Students responded on a five-header scale from strongly disagree to strongly agree.Advertisement
