If you’re interested in improving your Spanish language skills, this program offers you the opportunity to rapidly strengthen your Spanish through a rigorous language course taught by IES Abroad. You select the remainder of your courses from options available at IES Abroad and prestigious local universities. You can also enroll in an internship or service learning placement during your time in Quito, which will help you add international work experience to your résumé, or help you understand the city’s social issues first-hand. Quito will be your classroom. Can you imagine visiting and observing Ecuadorian customs at a traditional fiesta or visiting local markets and handicraft workshops? Wherever possible, our courses take advantage of the city’s many historical, artistic, and cultural sites. Several courses include a hands-on, practical component. You also take several field trips to exotic locations while you study abroad in Quito, including the remote Galápagos Islands. Imagine yourself in an environmental haven of fearless sea lions, penguins, iguanas, and tortoises just 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador. It’s not very often you’d get to be so near to nature and see so many species up close—with IES Abroad, we’ll take you there.

I am a Hispanic, first-gen woman with a physical disability from a lower SES I couldn’t see studying abroad as a reality for me. Finally junior year of college I made the decision that no matter the obstacles present I was going to study/intern abroad.
Financial planning and multiple financial strategies are critical when it comes to studying abroad. When I found my study abroad program, the first thing I did was figure out a budget.
Being a first generation student, I always had an enormous pressure to do well in school in order to be successful in the future. With that being said, I never gave any thought in studying abroad because I felt it was unnecessary in order to complete my dreams. However, I always thought the idea of studying abroad was interesting but never within my reach.
