January 28, 2022

This spring semester is an exciting one for us here at IES Abroad, as we welcome 95 students to our Correspondent Program! 

Our Social Media Correspondents🤳 will hashtag their way across the globe this fall, showing us their journey in real time on their own Instagram and TikTok accounts. Our Bloggers✍️ will be sharing their stories via writing, photos, videos, and other creative pursuits. All those beautiful photos you see on our website or in our catalogs? Most likely, they were taken by one of our Photographersđź“· who work behind the scenes to capture the IES Abroad experience. And across the board you'll find IDEA Correspondents, reflecting on how aspects of their identity intersect with life abroad. 

The talent on display here is pretty impressive, if we do say so ourselves. 

If you want a firsthand account of what it's really like to study abroad, look no further than one of our trusty Correspondents. Watch the video below to see them say hello, and keep scrolling to learn a little bit more about who they are and where they're studying. 

Meet our Correspondents!
