Exchange Programs to be cancelled

Education Information

Universities in the USA have been advised by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to consider postponing or cancelling all upcoming foreign exchange programs and consider asking current programme participants to return to their home country. The CDC said higher education institutions should work with state and local public health officials to determine the best approach for when and how their study abroad students might return --for instance, chartered transportation for countries or areas assessed as high-risk for exposure. A key problem for US higher education institutions is that China is also the leading country of origin of international students studying in the US and is the seventh most popular destination for US students studying abroad. Many higher education institutions have programmes in China.
