Top 10 Study Abroad Instagram Photos from July & August 2018

You are here

We could tell you how amazing studying abroad is, but we believe our students say (and show) it best! From embracing the culture of South Africa, to admiring the breathtaking mountains of New Zealand, or celebrating a 10-year reunion in Ireland, these photos remind us of the power of study abroad. Studying abroad is a life-changing experience, and it warms our hearts to see our students making the most of it.

Check out our Top 10 study abroad Instagram photos from July & August 2018, and be sure to tag your photos with #IESabroad for a chance to be featured at the end of September!

Some people might love New York, but @jillpownall is showing her love for studying abroad in Milan!

Student in Rome

7. Italy

“My father asked me, ‘Aren't you studying abroad already! Why Italy then?’ Because we need to seize every opportunity, because I am so lucky to study at #pennstate, because #smeal has amazing study abroad programs, because #iessiena will be my home, because abroad is a new book, because I am a global citizen.” @ofmylearnings we need more global citizens like you!

Student in New Zealand

8. New Zealand

“A year ago I went on a journey of a life time. I will never forget the adventures I had and the friends I made. I grew so much in my time in New Zealand and I can’t wait for the day I can go again.” @maddie2615 you have us tearing up, we are so glad you enjoyed your time studying abroad in Christchurch.

Student in Cape Town

9. South Africa

When you study abroad you are exposed to a culture that might differ from your own, @itslinieeduhh had this to say about her own experience: “Today my heart was filled with joy as I experienced the South African culture. Everyone is soooo happy and they respect one another. I automatically felt the unity in the Langa Township community the moment I stepped foot in Langa. The children there laugh and smile with no care in the world!!! Also, everyone knows one another!!! I found that quite impressive. The streets are filled with colorful Art and talented people...”

Students in Granada

10. Spain

In response to @alexbroxb writing, “THANK YOU <3 #middlebury #iesabroad”, we want to thank you for choosing us and we hope that studying abroad in Granada was everything you could have dreamed of and more!

We want to see study abroad through your eyes! Hashtag your Instagram photos with #IESabroad to show us what you love about study abroad.
