Site Visits

ISA staff, both in the US and abroad, works closely with you, our university partners, to help you achieve your educational mission.
 
By participating in an organized Group Site Visit or Individual Site Visit, you will gain a better understanding of our programs and witness our exceptional on-site student support. We welcome the opportunity to host you at our program sites and would be delighted to share our passion for international education with you and your colleagues. 
 
Group Site Visits
ISA offers multiple Group Site Visits during both the spring and fall semesters. Our Group Site Visit itinerary typically includes visits to two or more ISA program sites, and consists of both academic and cultural activities. Group Site Visit participants will tour our host institutions, observe various classes, and meet with university personnel, including international office administrators and faculty when possible. In addition to host university visits, Group Site Visit participants will visit the ISA office at each site, during which they will meet the ISA staff responsible for supporting students during their study abroad program. Visitors will also be able to spend time with ISA students currently abroad, allowing visitors the opportunity to speak openly with students about their experience with ISA.

If your site assessment is intended to support development of Custom Programs, our WorldStrides ISA Custom Programs division hosts a complimentary familiarization program each year designed for this purpose. For an invitation, contact university@worldstrides.org.

Individual Site Visits

ISA offers Individual Site Visits at all of our program locations, allowing study abroad advisors and faculty to gain first-hand knowledge of our program offerings, host university curriculum, and ISA on-site support. The itinerary for an Individual Site Visit is tailored to best meet the specific needs and objectives of the visitor. A typical individual site visit itinerary can include a meeting with our on-site staff to review ISA's program offerings, along with visits to the host university and ISA student housing. Individual Site Visits can be planned as a half- or full-day visit, depending on the visitors' availability.

Our WorldStrides ISA Custom Programs team can also support private site visits to assess a site for Custom Program development. Please reach out to the WorldStrides ISA Custom Programs team at university@worldstrides.org to explore this possibility.

If you or a colleague are planning to travel to a city where an ISA program is located and are interested in an Individual Site Visit, please send the available dates for the visit, areas of interest and/or site visit objectives, and any other pertinent information to the ISA Outreach Coordinator at SiteVisit@studiesabroad.com. Please note that Individual Site Visit costs are not subsidized by ISA. We need 45 days advanced notice and depending on the time of year (such as May and June), we may not be able to accommodate individual site visits due to staff availability.
