    Abstract: The expansion of globalization and higher education has caused study abroad programs to change in many Asian countries. In particular, the overprovided undergraduate and graduate education system in Taiwan raises questions on how college students perceive such outbound study. This study collected survey data from 219 college students at two universities in Taiwan to analyze their opinions and levels of readiness regarding study abroad programs. This study applied fuzzy methods to transform the data and interpret the results, revealing that gender and college major influence students’ perceptions on the importance of study abroad, as well as their readiness to study abroad. Following the expansion of higher education in Taiwan, more students are considering study abroad programs for a short-term stay in a foreign country. According to the patterns of perceptions, this study built fuzzy models to explain the consistency of importance and levels of readiness regarding study abroad. The results reveal that fuzzy statistics can be used to interpret the factors influencing students to study abroad.
