ISI Abroad Partnerships for
Collaborative International Programming

To coin a phrase, “direct partnership” has its privileges. When your college or university partners with ISI abroad you are working directly with the institution which is hosting your programs and teaching your students – we are not a provider or a broker. We operate our own institutes and administer all programs directly to ensure that every student, accompanying faculty member and staff, is afforded the safest and most rewarding international experience possible. And with over twenty year’s experience in international education, we understand well  the needs and concerns of study abroad advisors, academic departments, professors, registrars, parents and students.


Our student services team and admission specialists do not advise for dozens of programs globally like the larger providers. Our team consists of On-site administrators, staff and alumni who can promptly answer any question about are programs with honest, accurate and up-to-date information. Not only does that provide more efficient and reassuring communication, but it also allows us to offer you and your students the best experience possible at the most affordable rates – no surprises, no hidden fees. Affordability means more students from more diverse socio-economic backgrounds can make study abroad a reality, something central to ISI Abroad’s mission.
