The Ohio State University is ranked in the top 25 for the number of students studying abroad, according to a national report released today, with 1,716 students studying abroad in 2011-12.

These findings were issued as part of the 2013 Open Doors Report, an annual survey published by the Institute of International Education.

During the 2012-2013 academic year an estimated 2,200 students studied abroad with close to 600 of those students taking advantage of an international academic experience during May session. CFAES is already a leader at Ohio State in providing meaningful study abroad programs and in the number of students taking part in them. On average, more than 40 percent of CFAES students participate in study abroad programs, compared to the university’s overall rate of approximately 20 percent.
