Picture this: instead of your usual walk across campus, you're passing the Colosseum on your left and popping into an open-air market for breakfast on your way to class. Oh, and that class? It's actually a hands-on internship today. You've signed up for one alongside your courses, and it's for-credit and included in your program fee.

It's not just commuting and classwork that gets [redefined]® when you study abroad.

Your morning coffee becomes a new adventure each day since you and your study abroad friends made a pact to try out every local café in town before the program ends. And even those friends? Who knew you'd make such incredible friendships (ahem, or should we say redefine the concept of frienship) so quickly.

Don't even get us started on the personal growth, career benefits, worldview, language learning, sense of home, and more.

When you study abroad with IES Abroad, your entire world gets [redefined]®.
