“I would recommend IES Abroad to anyone who was studying abroad. They were friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived to the airport to the moment we left...My summer abroad has continued to be a positive influence even months later, and the staff continues to make an effort to keep a connection to their past students.”- Lauren | IES Abroad Dublin
 
“My study abroad experience in Santiago, Chile, surpassed my expectations. As a member of the Health Studies Program, I took a Spanish for Healthcare Professionals course, did an internship at a community health foundation, and participated in a health studies seminar.”- Andrew | IES Abroad Santiago
 
“Studying abroad in China for the 2015-16 academic year with IES Abroad was undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable, challenging, and transformative experiences of my life so far, and I look back on my experiences in Beijing as the highlight of my college career.”- Megan | IES Abroad Beijing 
 
“I studied in Rabat, Morocco, for three and a half months, and it was the most unforgettable experience I’ve ever had. Morocco is different from anything I had ever known and even though it was intimidating at first, I felt one with the country and the people in no time.” - Victoria | IES Abroad Rabat
