For many parents sending their child of to college can be a difficult transition.  Your child is moving away, growing up, and encountering new people and opportunities.  The number one thing parents want for their child is for them to succeed, and study abroad will help with that.

Studies show that students who study abroad return with the skills that today’s employers want.  These students are often hired faster after graduation than their peers who did not study abroad, and they often are hired at higher starting salaries.  This blog post, from the Institute for International Education, summarizes those studies, with links to the full articles.

We encourage you to look through the information on our site.  To the left you will find links to information that will help you to support your student through this very important part of their education.  If you have additional questions, feel free to contact us.
