Why do we exist? We spark growth. We envision a more connected and compassionate world transformed through individuals who have traveled, lived, and learned abroad. 

How do we do it? We provide U.S. university students with the best value in education abroad, considering affordability, academic relevance, cultural immersion, and support. We are boldly committed to providing the highest quality service to students, their families, and their home institutions as a trusted education partner.

What makes us tick? Our Values. Whatever the answer to the Who, What or Why questions you have about us, we believe you’ll find a company full of passionate, mission and value driven staff who are committed to providing you with the best possible study or internship abroad experience.


We love what we do and believe in the power of education abroad.
We believe that work and play are not mutually exclusive.
Cultural Curiosity.
We believe cultural differences should be explored and appreciated, and try our best to walk humbly, learn, and listen.
We care and are here for our students and partners.
Change & Growth.
We embrace change and smart growth and understand that you can’t have one without the other.


More than 25,000 students have participated in our programs. They have come from all backgrounds and all types of institutions. And, true to our vision, they have all been transformed like Allison —

I wanted to go abroad with a program that I knew was going to make it the best experience possible and guide me through the process. I had two friends travel abroad last spring to London with CIS Abroad and they both had the time of their lives. That made me certain I would go abroad with CIS Abroad.
