What We Value
Our team of extraordinary people around the world truly care about the success and well-being of our participants. We believe in employing individuals who are dedicated to international education and offer exceptional student support.
High-touch, high-quality student support at every step of the way ensures a successful experience abroad. We believe in providing excellent service to our students throughout the process – from the first point of inquiry until after the return home.
Health and Safety of Our Participants
Prompt, professional response to health and safety concerns of our students is top priority at ISA. Our staff in-country proactively address issues and are on call 24/7 in case of emergency, and our Health and Safety team in the U.S. ensures that communication regarding incidents flows in all cases to necessary parties.
We are committed to building and honoring diversity on ISA programs. Differences in background, race, gender identity, sexual orientation and every other facet of individuality is what makes this world so exciting to explore. We promise that all students have a place with ISA.
High-Quality Academic Experiences
High-quality academics are key to any education abroad experience. We partner with distinguished universities around the world to deliver courses in every field of study as well as foreign language instruction at every level.
Learning Outside the Classroom
We believe that learning outside of the classroom is an important part of the international education experience. For this reason our programs include an on-site orientation as well as cultural activities and excursions designed around learning objectives designed to enhance and deepen classroom learning through exposure to unique aspects of the host country--an approach we call the “Discovery Model."
Wide Variety of Program Options
Education abroad is not one-size-fits-all. We offer a wide array of program types and destinations to fit the academic and personal goals of every student.
Affordable Program Fees
We believe that study abroad should be financially accessible, thus we strive to maintain affordable programs and offer scholarships and encourage students to use financial aid.
Our institutional partnerships are invaluable to us as an organization. We strive to be flexible, supportive, responsive, and helpful to our university partners as they work to achieve their own goals.
