Program Description:
Consortium for Overseas Student Teaching (COST)

Program Overview:

COST is an association of fifteen colleges and universities that places education students in schools in foreign countries to fulfill student teaching requirements. Students generally complete nine weeks of student teaching in the U.S, and teach abroad the second nine weeks of the semester. 

If you are adventurous, academically able, independent and ambitious, overseas student teaching offers an opportunity to broaden your outlook on the world and future professional possibilities. You will gain greater sensitivity to other cultures, a more informed perspective on the United States' role in the world, greater appreciation of your heritage, and increased self-confidence from having successfully dealt with new and challenging situations; qualities much needed in today's teachers.
