IAP LogoReturned Student Network
The IAP Returned Student Network is a collection of recent program participants who are willing to answer your questions and share details about their study abroad experience. If you're curious to know what a study abroad program is like, especially from the perspective of being a student abroad, one of your best resources is connecting with a former participant of a program. Returned students may be able to provide you with tips in navigating the academics, share local insider knowledge, and even help with those pre-departure questions, like what to pack! From Argentina to Wales or accounting to zoology, we hope you're able to connect with a returnee who is just as excited to recount stories and details as much as you are to learn about them.
