Welcome to C.O.S.T. - The Consortium for Overseas Student Teaching
COST is a collaboration of 15 colleges and universities in the United States that provides opportunities for its students to have quality student teaching experiences in overseas settings. As director of COST, I work closely with university and school representatives from the United States and around the world to promote global understanding, intercultural communication, and a meaningful educational experience.
If you are a student of a COST member institution we encourage you to review this site, learn about the program, and consider possible student teaching placement destinations. If your school is not a member of COST, you may still find valuable information on international and intercultural adjustment, overseas travel, and research and other initiatives related to study abroad and the internationalization of education. You will find other organizations that offer overseas student teaching opportunities.
NOTE: ON July 1, 2014, THE COST DIRECTORSHIP WILL TRANSFER TO GRAND VALLEY STATE UNIVERSITY, MICHIGAN.
