Study Abroad Programs at Some Schools in Japan

In September 2001, three questions concerning institutional study abroad programs were asked to a convenience sample of 33 teachers working at various post-secondary schools in Japan via e-mail. The questions were:
  1. Does your school have a formal overseas study program?
  2. If so, do students participating in that program go through any special pre-departure training or orientation? (If so, briefly describe it.)
  3. If your school has an overseas study program, do faculty chaperons or advisors accompany the participants overseas?

28 of the respondents completed the survey. The results are summarized below.
