How to get from here – to there.


Life’s a journey full of unknown mystery… but applying for a study or intern abroad experience shouldn’t be.

We listen to student feedback to make the application process as easy as possible - no small feat considering you’re getting things in order to live in a new country for a while!

But never fear - we’re here to help. There are five basic stages to your study abroad experience, all with a bit of a different timetable. We’ll keep you informed of next steps so you’ll always know what’s needed from you - even if it’s just waiting with excitement!


1: Getting Started
2: Enrollment
3: Pre-Departure
4: On-Site Experience
5: Returning Home


More than 24,000 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.
