The article caters to graduating high school students weighing their options for higher education as well as graduating or post-college grads considering graduate school.
In your search for the college or university that's right for you, we'd like to introduce you to your abroad option. Believe it or not, more than 40,000 students are taking the leap to attend college abroad full time. And with these growing numbers it is certainly an education plan you should consider.

Driscoll's article highlights the benefits of earning your degree abroad, as well as some important factors to consider before making this decision on a whim.
