IES Abroad strives to provide premier study abroad programs for U.S. students that deliver the highest quality education while simultaneously promoting development of intercultural competence. IES ran its first program in 1950 and now offers programs in 35 cities and 21 countries.
External Study Abroad Approval Process
Students participating with an External Program are required to complete Temple's External Programs approval process. Completion of the approval process allows students to maintain full-time enrollment status, apply eligible financial aid and transfer credits earned abroad back to Temple.
Request to Study Abroad
To request approval to study abroad with IES, please complete and submit a Request to Study Abroad application. Your request will be reviewed to ensure that the program is an appropriate fit and that you meet the general eligibility requirements for study abroad. Once your request has been processed, you will be informed of the decision via an email to your Temple email account. If your request is approved, you'll be granted access to remaining pre-departure information, materials, and requirements. Requests to study abroad must be received on or before the application deadline.
