Program Information
Whether it's a high school science class in Australia or an elementary school class in South Africa, as a participant in the Consortium for Overseas Student Teaching (COST) program, you learn first-hand what it means to be a teacher in a global society.
COST may serve as part of the culminating experience of your teacher education program, marking the transition from student to professional educator. The consortium allows you to experience this singular moment in your teaching career through full immersion in a foreign culture and classroom. 
Each year, between 10 and 15 College of Education students complete this final step of their teacher education programs by taking advantage of this opportunity to student teach abroad. As you think about your student teaching options, we encourage you to consider the COST program, a consortium of universities from across the nation that work through their own colleges and departments to place students in classrooms around the world. 
The language of instruction is always English. You do not have to speak or learn a foreign language.
