Attending university in the United States isn’t just the goal of many Americans, but the dream of aspiring academics the world over. In the school year 2015/16 there were over 328,000 international students from China studying in the United States, the most of any nationality. The strong reputation of universities in the United States is a strong pull factor, alongside the cultural influence the United States holds around the world.
For those American students wishing to emulate this experience in some way, international exchange programs are a popular option. They represent a chance to travel, expand ones cultural horizons and possibly study in a foreign language. The most popular destination for U.S. students studying abroad is the United Kingdom. Although the quality of the climate is seemingly not a factor for those students, it may well be the case for the second and third most popular destinations on the list – Italy and Spain.
