IES Abroad offers 120+ programs worldwide for college students. We are a highly charged force of study abroad enthusiasts. Every day we have the privilege of witnessing how study abroad changes our students' lives. We also believe that every student should have the opportunity to go abroad--especially in a fun, safe, and superior academic and cultural environment.
From our headquarters in Chicago to our 35 locations and the staff on-site, we all work toward the common goal of providing mind-bending, life-changing, opinion-altering study abroad opportunities.
We're not ashamed to admit we're a little bit obsessed with study abroad.

One thing I would have liked would to be able to meet more Irish peers. This program was a group of Americans studying and living together, so it was hard to become friends with locals. However, IES does offer a direct enrollment program, but this was not one of them.

The only thing I would say to improve the program is the level of organization for planned events. I learned to understand that Argentines are not punctual people and they are more relaxed, so I got used to it. In a way, it was fun to have events not run on time and change my normal to their normal of running late and not being in a hurry. Although this may seem as a waste of time (and in some cases it definitely was) I learned to appreciate the culture and not hold people so closely to a strict time schedule for events that should happen when they are planned.

I wish we were given more info about how to travel to and from Salamanca, given that Salamanca is a smaller city, traveling, if you weren't using the right services could be hectic.

The program only recruited students from American universities and so there seemed to be a lack of diversity in the students that participated the program.
