Are you ready to fall head over heels for study abroad? Check out our Top 10 study abroad Instagram photos from September & October 2018. Our students captured wildlife in South Africa, learned how to live like a local in Shanghai, and reflected on their experiences in London and Milan!

1. Austria

"I learned a lot about responsibility and living alone, about myself and who I want to be, about mental health (my own and in general), and about exploring myself and the world around me. My experience abroad was eye-opening and gave me such a different perspective on myself and the world." When you study abroad in Vienna you'll learn a lot about Austria, but you might also learn more about yourself, just like @jessmariea123!

2. China

When you study abroad in Shanghai you will be encouraged to do like the locals do, and eat like them too! "I’ve found a barber and I’m now a pro at eating rice with chopsticks, this makes me a Shanghai local now, right?" @tuurrnce has really stepped up his chopstick game.

"Paris, I miss you and your croissants, and your art, and your street music, and Boucicaut, and wine nights on the Seine and L’As du Fallafel. Even the metro mobs during rush hour. See you soon France." @alissasmith5, Paris will be waiting for you to return!

@jkjoykim is another one of our IES Abroad Ambassadors, and this is what she had to say about her experience studying abroad in Milan! "My time in Milan this past spring was life-changing, and I could not recommend a more eye-opening and valuable experience. Living and studying in a completely new environment for an entire semester made me grow as a student, friend, and a person overall. It opened so many doors for me and allowed me to see parts of the world I had been dreaming about forever, like Florence!"
