Resources for Being You Abroad

From picky eaters to try-everything-once-ers, students who study or intern abroad are pretty obsessed with food, and so are we.

IES Abroad cares about every student making the most of their abroad experience. That's why we have compiled resources on how to travel with food allergies, while gluten free, while vegan, while vegetarian, or while adhering to religious guidelines (check out the dietary resources section on our Religion & Spirituality page) to help prepare you and support you along the way. 

Browse a collection of IES Abroad and other website's resources specific to the eating while abroad with diverse dietary needs. 

At IES Abroad, we're here to help. If you have any questions about your identity abroad, please contact our Diversity Relations Department by emailing us at or by calling 800.995.2300. Know of another resource we should add? Let us know!

“I've never considered myself a foodie, but after having so much amazing food here, I think I'll be more adventurous about food from now on. Trying new food and the original versions of your faves is one of the best parts of being here.”

Just as each study abroad experience is unique, each location offers a different adventure. So we've made sure to compile diversity resources specific to your host city and country.
