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. Our CCTECC Coordinator will contact overseas schools that accept student teachers to find a placement that will be beneficial to your teacher preparation. As part of this program, Interaction International holds a Pre-Experience Orientation Seminar where topics such as cross-cultural transition, the international school, the third culture kids profile, the multi-cultural classroom, culture stress and various other activities are aimed at preparing you for the experience of student teaching overseas. You will also be meeting other student teachers from different colleges who may be going to the same school or area as you.

Refund Policy

We understand circumstances change, so the CCTECC board has put the following policy into place in regards to refunds.

If you choose to withdraw from the CCTECC program at any point after application has been made, your cancellation or withdrawal must be made through the appointed CCTECC supervisor on your college/university campus in order to be official, during the academic year as well as during summer breaks. All requests for refunds must be made in writing. The reimbursement guidelines are as follows:

  • If the student withdraws after a file has been created and an initial contact with an overseas school has been made, a refund of $325 will be made.
  • If the student withdraws after a file has been created and two contacts with overseas schools or a placement has been finalized, a refund of $200 will be made.
  • If the student withdraws after attending the spring or fall Pre-Experience Orientation (PEO), there is no refund.
