Passport to the World

A passport is not just a simple passport. A passport is the first step to an adventure, and an item that is treasured years after your first experience (because often it isn’t your last), as you proudly look back at the stamps you have collected. In the wise words of Grumpy Cat–

For some, part of applying for study abroad is getting your first passport or renewing it. Even if you aren’t thinking about travel right now, a passport is a great idea so that you can be ready when an opportunity presents itself. You can visit travel.state.gov for help.

Why is International Education Important?

6 Ways to Celebrate International Education Week

T I P S  F O R (1)

What Does International Education Mean to You?

IEWWeek

This week (Nov. 17-21), organizations from all around the world are celebrating International Education and all that it signifies.

BUSINESS (1)

At International Experience (iE-USA), our whole mission centers around the values of international education. We aim to provide opportunities for students to explore the world and share their stories, while learning how to interact with new cultures and customs. We believe that learning about other cultures, languages, and customs is the best way to dispel prejudices and embrace global citizenship.

So whether a student is abroad in Spain, the U.S., or South Africa, we know they will be a future contributor to a globalized economy where people from all around the world work together, collaborate, and help each other. What they learn while abroad will not only help them, but those around them.

So this week, we ask you, what does international education mean to you, and how has interaction with someone from another country helped you in your life? Leave us a comment!
