International Studies Abroad

ISA is a leading non-profit provider of study abroad programs to Australia and New Zealand. Having sent over 9,000 students abroad in the last 14 years, ISA strives to offer programs that are both academically and culturally enriching for students. The process of direct enrollment at foreign institutions can often be cumbersome and complicated – ISA provides the full range of services to assist students with the process of preparing for a successful abroad experience through the ISA Four Points of Focus:

  1. Guaranteed Service
  2. Time and Money Savings
  3. Academic Support
  4. Exciting Additions to your Program

ISA strives to be responsive to individual students by offering 26 varied and interesting study abroad sites in Australia and New Zealand. Regional Directors meet face to face with students across the nation and our in-office counselors are trained to service only 3 – 4 overseas programs in order to provide the best advice to participants. We are known as the “personable” program where there are no silly questions or concerns.

ISA believes that cultural integration is key even when students select an English-speaking destination where no foreign language is required. Cultural integration is a cornerstone of our program management whereby we supply extensive pre-trip information, counseling and support, house our students with New Zealand and other international students, almost without exception, and allow our group to participate in campus activities versus American group activities during free time.
