Resources for being you abroad.

Being the first person in your family to go to college is an honor and we are already so proud of you for making that first step. At IES Abroad, we realize that studying or interning abroad is not just a journey and a new experience for you, but for your family as well. We know that you might not have done any of this before, so we have compiled resources on studying abroad to help prepare you and support you along the way.
