Study Abroad 2006-2007

Just a reminder for those of you who are thinking of studying abroad or who have friends who are planning for foreign studies, UNESCO publishes this useful book.

Study Abroad 2006-2007 contains some 2,900 entries concerning post-secondary education and training in all academic and professional fields in countries throughout the world. Key features include information on:

- Study opportunities and financial assistance available to students wishing to study in a foreign country
- National systems of higher education
- Open and distance learning (ODL) opportunities
- Validation of foreign qualifications
- How to search for quality institutions of higher education including warnings about bogus institutions

If you work in an institution of higher education, and want to be sure it is listed in the next update of Study Abroad, this might be a good time to contact UNESCO.
