Building on nearly years of commitment to study abroad, IIE will lead the Generation Study Abroad coalition in raising awareness of the need for students to gain language and cultural skills, identifying and breaking down barriers hindering students from studying abroad, sharing strategies and best practices to increase study abroad, and mobilizing additional financial resources. In addition to significantly expanding study abroad, the campaign will encourage and track campus activities that expand diversity in race and ethnicity, academic disciplines, and gender.
In today's increasingly global workplace, the number is far too low. Generation Study Abroad seeks to address this shortfall by bringing employers, governments, associations, and others together to build on current best practices and find new ways to extend study abroad opportunities to hundreds of thousands of college students who are not currently taking part in study abroad. International experience is now one of the most important components of a 21st century resume.

Since , over 1. With more than 50 years of experience, we have the resources and experience to provide what our students want and need in a study abroad program, and to safeguard their welfare around the globe. Unlike many other study abroad programs or independent study options, AIFS program fees are guaranteed in dollars. Our program fee is also all-inclusive, making it simple for you to live and study abroad and experience all that the world has to offer.
Most AIFS campuses offer courses in English or in foreign languages from beginner to advanced levels, so you don't even have to know a foreign language to study abroad. The ability to work across multicultural environments, communicate across language barriers and lead increasingly diverse project teams has gone from what makes a job candidate leap to the top of the resume stack to what hiring managers use to weed out the unqualified.
CEA Global Education shares in your commitment to connect more students with the education they need to succeed in today's world through study abroad. The result is our students' ability to return to their home campus better equipped to articulate their experiences, newly acquired intercultural skills and, in many cases, improved language proficiency.
We realize universities and colleges face a tough budget outlook this year. In recognition of those declining resources, we've redoubled our efforts to provide the kids of services universities and colleges need to connect more students to the advantages of international education.
