Teach Abroad Programs

Undergraduate and graduate teacher candidates can apply to complete part of their student teaching in another country.

General Information

Generally the student teacher will complete a 10-week placement in southeastern Wisconsin and complete a 10-week placement overseas. Students should apply for this opportunity one year prior to the expected student teaching placement. Program duration abroad typically lasts from 8 to 10 weeks depending on the needs of our foreign school partners.

Because many schools abroad do not follow our school schedule, students may need to complete the placement abroad in a time that exceeds our traditional semester. In this case, the student will receive an incomplete and the grade for student teaching will be posted upon completion of the placement abroad.

Students interested in a teaching placement abroad should initially contact the College of Education and Leadership and submit a teach abroad program application to the Office of Student Placements. For more information about student teacher placements abroad including program cost and program locations, please contact the Study Abroad Office.
