USA: NY, MN mull state legislation of study abroad

Two US states are working on legislation that they hope will protect the interests of students who study abroad. In New York, proposed legislation would force colleges to fully disclose the costs of their study abroad programmes, while a new Minnesota bill would require institutions to file annual reports on student deaths, accidents and illnesses that occur during study abroad.

Study Minnesota consortium launched

In a move to attract more international students to Minnesota, 21 regional educational institutions supported by the Minnesota Trade Office and the US Commercial Service, have formed the "Study Minnesota" consortium. The state is ranked 19th in the US for the number of international students in its college and universities.
