Consortium for Overseas Student Teaching


If you are adventurous, academically able, independent and ambitious, student teaching overseas offers an opportunity to broaden your outlook on the world and expand future professional possibilities. Through this experience, you will gain greater sensitivity to other cultures, a more informed perspective on the United States’ role in the world, greater appreciation of your heritage, and increased self-confidence from having successfully dealt with new and challenging situations -- qualities much needed among today’s teachers. The University of Kentucky is an active member of the national Consortium for Overseas Student Teaching (COST), an association that places teacher candidates in schools in foreign countries to fulfill student teaching requirements.
