PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Brigham Young University is among the top schools for students studying abroad. That's according to the annual Open Doors report.
The report listed B-Y-U as one of the top 20 schools with students heading to foreign countries to take classes, learn languages and experience local cultures.
The study showed the number of students studying abroad for academic credit increased by nine-point-six percent in the 2003-04 year. The surge in interest increased the total number of U-S students abroad to a record of more than 191-thousand.
Although the majority of students study abroad in Europe, there were significant increases in the number of students studying in other countries, such as China and India.
