Before teaching the world, let the world teach you — study education abroad!
Traveling the world makes us awesome storytellers. Don’t believe us? Just ask anyone who’s studied abroad — we guarantee they’ll fill your ears with thousands of stories (we’re guilty as charged)! This gift of storytelling is especially powerful for future teachers. Thanks to studying abroad, the lessons you teach about international cities or cultures will have much more value after you’ve experienced them yourself — and there are a bunch of unique study abroad programs available for all sorts of education interests.
Here are a few of our favorite places to study education abroad:
1. London, England
Charming England is a haven for culture and the arts and a great spot to get ahead on course credit for your degree in Education. At the AIFS Global Education Center in London, an intriguing course called Comparative Education Systems will be offered this fall. This course introduces students to the different education systems in the U.K., Europe, and North America. Through a combination of field trips and classroom learning, you’ll explore important topics such as the role of education in social mobility, social justice, and issues of inclusion and exclusion.
