Interested in student teaching overseas?

Established in 1972, COST is a collaboration of 15 U.S. colleges and universities that provides opportunities for its students to have quality student teaching experiences in overseas settings.

This program provides future teachers with the opportunity to try their educational theories in classroom situations within the context of a new country, a new culture, and a new style of life.  Some of the student teachers who participate in the overseas clinical experience accept full-time jobs overseas after finishing.  All of them return to the U.S. with a new and special appreciation for their overseas hosts.

Sites countries include Australia, Bahamas, China, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa, and Spain.
