Our full name is the Institute for the International Education of Students. We know, it's kind of a mouthful! What it means though, is that we're passionate about making meaningful academic and cultural education opportunities available to students around the world.
In fact, we've had a few names in our 70 year history. We started as the Institute of European Studies, then became the Institute of European Studies/Institute of Asian Studies (IES/IAS), next Institute for the International Education of Students (IES®), then finally our name became who we are today: IES Abroad.
