The Loyola University New Orleans has been ranked among the top varsities in the nation for its study abroad programmes, said the recently released report by the 'Institute of International Education'.
The report was published in partnership with the US Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
The varsity is ranked 36th place and is among the top 40 master's institutions across the nation for undergraduate programmes for study abroad.
Moreover, 35.3% of its undergraduate students are studying abroad. According to report, the maximum number of US students who study abroad has been increased by 3.4%, which is more than 2,83,000 for the academic year 2011-12.
The number of American students has also increased three times compared to past two decades, the report said.
The Director of Loyola's Centre for International Education, Debbie Danna said, "At Loyola, our students tend to go to non-traditional locations more than at other schools because of the international focus here and the fact that our students interests really span the globe. Our new programmes outside of western Europe in Brazil, Korea and Educator, reflect that interests."
He also said, "Loyola students are currently studying abroad in non-traditional places like Malaysia and South Africa. Students are also planning to study abroad in Brazil, Botswana and more."
