While your social identity will likely shape your study abroad experience, your study abroad experience will shape you, too!
And we'd like to help with those first few steps, those confusing moments abroad, and maybe even how you process 'what just happened?' when you get home. Fostering and supporting students from diverse backgrounds has always been part of what we do.
So whether you have a food allergy, anxiety, or a tight budget, or are the first family member to go to college (and abroad), LGBTQ+-identifying, an international student, or looking to practice your religion abroad (or maybe all of the above!), we've got you covered. We are proud to share a series of both IES Abroad and external resources compiled to make the predeparture and on-site process easier―check them out below!
NOTE: IES Abroad does not have a partnership or formally endorse any external resources listed within this section.
