International student teaching placements are made by the Field Experiences office AFTER a teacher candidate applies for student teaching. STEP, IESE and UECH faculty review the teacher candidates application and decide if the student teacher can student teacher abroad.

Education teacher candidates who have been accepted to student teach internationally will have two 8 week placements, one abroad and one in MN or WI.

In the international placement, a professor from a local college or school will supervise teacher candidates. 

For more information about studying abroad please visit the Study Abroad Office.

Student Testimonial


It(Slovenia) is absolutely amazing! We have been traveling every weekend so far, but are staying in Ljubljana this weekend to help with a world cup competition that DKIS is hosting. It will be an amazing experience! The education system here is so different, it is taking a little of adjustment and trial/error to figure out how to fulfill the inquiry-cycle with such a diverse group of learners. The school is amazing, and I can't believe I get to participate and learn in this environment everyday.
