IES Abroad offers 130+ programs worldwide for college students. We are a highly charged force of study abroad enthusiasts. Every day we have the privilege of witnessing how study abroad changes our students’ lives. We also believe that every student should have the opportunity to go abroad—especially in a fun, safe, and superior academic and cultural environment.
From our headquarters in Chicago to our 30+ locations and the staff on-site, we all work toward the common goal of providing mind-bending, life-changing, opinion-altering study abroad opportunities.
IES Abroad’s commitment to representing and integrating diverse perspectives, cultures, ideas, and identities within our programs is integral to our mission. We are proud that our students are as diverse and exciting as the countries where they study.
