In Part II we examined narratives from students involved in a variety of study abroad programmes, including a 10-day secondary school exchange, credit-bearing overseas semesters for university students and independently organized long-term university education. Within these categories of study abroad we can identify several dimensions of variation which have the potential to affect participants’ outcomes. These include the duration of the programme, participant educational level, programme organization, level of integration and interaction with host nationals, and the purpose or goals of participation.
