IES Abroad is always pleased to host visits to our international Centers from study abroad staff and faculty from our Consortium or sending schools.
Center site visits are organized through Michael Green, Associate Vice President of Recruiting & Advising, in order to coordinate all aspects of the visit, including how to best meet every visitor’s individual objectives and goals. Although visits are facilitated through IES Abroad, vistors cover their own costs.
Request a Visit
To request a Center visit, please complete the IES Abroad Visit Request Form below.
We ask that you outline the reasons for the visit, objectives to be met, and the proposed timeframe. IES Abroad asks for notification of at least one month prior to a visit. Knowing this information will help IES Abroad facilitate the most successful visits possible.
The Visit Request Form below also enables visitors to indicate who they would like to meet with on-site and activities they would like to participate in as part of the visit.
Examples of activities include:
- Touring the IES Abroad Center
- Meeting with Center staff and faculty
- Observing IES Abroad or partner university classes
- Visiting internship placements
- Seeing student housing
- Meeting with students
- Learning more about customized programming
When to Visit a Center
IES Abroad will do its best to accommodate the timing of a proposed visit. However, due to a Center’s academic schedule, there are some periods, like orientation and exam weeks, during which Center visits are not possible. As a result, a visitor may be asked to propose an alternative timeframe.
After Your Visit
All Center visitors are asked to provide program and visit input by completing a site visit feedback report, which IES Abroad issues upon the visitor’s return. IES Abroad reviews the information in these reports as part of our mission to continually assess and improve on-site programming.
