In 2010, IES Abroad received the prestigious Quality Improvement Process (QUIP 2A) designation from The Forum on Education Abroad.

This designation concluded a year-long process that led the Forum to confirm that IES Abroad is in substantial conformity with the Forum’s Standards of Good Practice, the highest standards in the education abroad field.

“QUIP is the closest designation the education abroad field has to accreditation and is the most objective, rigorous and authoritative process for evaluating study abroad programs in the country,” said Brian Whalen, President & CEO of The Forum on Education Abroad.

Upon approval of the Interim Report in 2015, The Forum Review Panel noted, "IES [Abroad] clearly is continuing to practice ongoing quality improvement and takes the Standards seriously as a way to improve its programming."

As a leader in the field of international education, IES Abroad is pleased to be the first third-party provider to successfully complete this category of review.
