Coding notes

The secondary country is the country of study in which the student will receive the second most amount of credit.  If a student receives equal amounts of credit for study in different countries, the secondary country is the second country in which the student receives the most credit.
Any country that the student will visit but will not receive credit for overseas study is disregarded.
