Why Student Teach Abroad?
Most don't enter the teaching profession for the prospect of becoming rich, they become teachers to make a difference and enrich the lives of children. Why not make your impact greater by helping children all over the world and begin your career student teaching abroad?
Through international student teaching placements, you will learn similarities and differences between educational systems, develop your ability to think on your feet, give yourself a decisive edge in your career options, develop leadership skills, and build teamwork through a sense of adventure.
Past program participants have taught in Ecuador, France, Australia, Japan, Germany, and Ireland!
UW-Green Bay has partnered with Educators Abroad, Ltd. to enable placements in more than 70 countries around the globe. Students may choose ten (10) or eighteen (18) week placements. **NOTE: We are currently unable to place any student teachers in the United Kingdom (England, N. Ireland, Scotland, Wales) due to immigration regulations. See Educators Abroad website for details.
You will teach in a class and school appropriate to your required placement. NO prior language knowledge is required for non-English speaking countries, though it will be helpful to learn some of the language!
Student teachers usually arrive in their host country at the beginning of the semester (September- November for fall and January- March for spring).
You can find more information about the locations offered and academic calendars (which vary around the world) on the Educators Abroad website. Please note most Southern Hemisphere locations follow opposite academic calendars as we do in the U.S.
Student teachers will have housing options based on country location. Placement options may be apartments, campus dormitories, or student teachers may be placed with host families or homestays in their host countries.
Host family living provides student teachers the opportunity to receive additional assistance in acclimating, experiencing multicultural family life, and enhancing conversational language skill.
Note prices vary greatly in different regions of the world which is something to consider. Please see program budget for further details.
