International Student Teaching

student teaching abroad

By teaching abroad, Miami pre-service candidates can broaden their horizons by gaining an increased understanding of cultural differences, compare and contrast schools abroad with those in the United States, and gain confidence in their teaching abilities. It can also be a great way to demonstrate initiative and resourcefulness that will impress future employers. There are currently two student teaching abroad options -- Luxembourg for 8 weeks during the fall semester and Taiwan for 7-weeks during the spring semester.

Those with student teaching placements in Europe will be placed in an International or European School with an English curriculum in Luxembourg for 8 weeks (mid-October to mid-December). Housing will be with experienced host families. Advantages of this student teaching option include: close proximity to staff and students of the Miami University Luxembourg Center (MUDEC) for support and travel opportunities; the combination of student teaching in a U.S. and an international setting, allowing for professional and personal growth in differing contexts; multiple easy weekend travel options throughout western Europe; and financial support from an EHS scholarship fund specifically allocated for this program.
