An overseas student teaching experience isn't a dream but a reality!

The CCTECC program allows education majors from member colleges to do their student teaching at overseas schools.

Students, who are approved by their education department, are placed by Interaction International. The CCTECC program began in 1990 and has grown to include 25 member institutions. This year approximately 100 education majors will go overseas to do their student teaching. To date, more than 1,700 students have gone to assignments at more than 130 schools overseas.

Benefits of Student Teaching Overseas

  • Valuable preparation for teaching in an international school setting.
  • Expanded cultural perspectives and worldview.
  • Broadened view of education and expanded knowledge base for developing one’s approach to education.
  • Develops valuable cross-cultural skills.
  • Enriches one’s academic background through first-hand experience in a foreign country and culture.
  • Builds self-confidence and self-esteem through the experience of travel and independent activity.
