Many Abroad Programmes Are Excluded
Students who are now planning to study abroad in Honduras/ Mexico and Cuernavaca have something to note for. Yes, Most of the programmes belonging to these places have been suspended from the list.

 

Here, according to a Study Abroad associate Director Kim Priebe, the University has temporarily suspended many programmes due to travel warnings issued by the US Department of State.

The warnings for the above mentioned places stated that as "Honduras has the highest murder rate in the world". For Mexico, the transnational criminal organizations have created security risks for travelers due to illegal narcotics trafficking.

Priebe said "Study abroad also cancelled the Middle East studies Programmes which are to be held in Summer biannual trip to Egypt after the country experienced "Ongoing Instability".

Though the changes may be inconvenient, students who planned on studying abroad in any of the recently suspended will have other options. According to Priebe, the college of Education on Foreign Languages and Literature department will send students to Costa Rica, while students studying Arabic will be going to Jordan instead of Egypt.

Here's what Middle East Studies Director and Professor of History, Akram Khater say about the issue. "In Jordan the way people seem to be demanding change appears to be channeled not through civil disobedience or demonstrations, but primarily through the press and legal parliamentary election process".

"Culturally, the Jordanian dialect was also closest to the dialect that students were learning in their Arabic classes. If both the Costa Rica and Jordan programs go as planned, these alternative programs might become permanent study abroad program", he added.

Pribe also said "We don't want students to say they want to go to Australia and not know what they are doing there. Students need to participate in a program that enriches both their academic and personal goals".

Students, planning to study in these places are to be aware of the issues. Please share the news, so that all such students are brought into attention.
