Loyola University Maryland is ranked No. 3 in the nation among master’s institutions that had the most students who studied abroad in mid-length programs for the 2016-17 academic year.

The ranking is part of the 2018 Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange, which is published by the Institute of International Education (IIE), the leading not-for-profit educational and cultural exchange organization in the United States.

More than 62 percent of Loyola students participate in Loyola’s various study abroad opportunities. Loyola sponsors 34 study abroad programs, as well as offers 5 summer programs for students unable to go abroad during the academic year. In the fall of 2018, Loyola opened a new program in Budapest, Hungary.

“It is a great pleasure and privilege to be able to offer such a transformative international experience to our students and to be recognized, as an institution, for our efforts in international education ” said André Colombat, Ph.D., dean of international programs.

Open Doors is published by the Institute of International Education (IIE), which has conducted an annual statistical survey on international students in the United States since its founding in 1919 and in partnership with the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) since 1972. Open Doors also reports on the number of international scholars at U.S. universities and international students enrolled in pre-academic Intensive English Programs.

More information about the Open Doors 2018 report is available on IIE’s website.
