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:
- Does your school have a formal overseas study program?
- If so, do students participating in that program go through any special pre-departure training or orientation? (If so, briefly describe it.)
- 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.
