More College Students Heading Abroad

More U.S. college students are going abroad as colleges and universities beef up their international programs.

The Institute for International Education says more than 223,000 U.S. students studied abroad in the 2005-2006 academic year.

That's up 8.5-percent from the year before.

The United Kingdom is the leading destination, but study in Asia has grown 26-percent.

More students are also going to Latin America and the Middle East.

More international students are also coming into the U.S. as enrollment of foreign students in American schools rose three-percent last year.
