About ISA (International Studies Abroad)

Year Founded: 1987

ISA aims to provide high-quality education abroad programs to college students from around the world at an affordable price. We recognize that we have an important role in the global effort of international educators to increase awareness of cultures and societies outside of each student's national boundaries. Our programs are designed to make the most out of our participant's learning experience abroad, and we understand that most university students need support and expert guidance before, during, and after their time abroad. We are a Global Partner of NAFSA: Association of International Educators, and supports its efforts to advance international education and exchange.
