“I would recommend IES Abroad to anyone who was studying abroad.

“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
