Teach Abroad

American Colleges & Universities
Why get involved?

Terra brings this opportunity to American students at no cost to the student or the student’s college or university. Terra properly vets the international schools where the American students will be placed. We work with American colleges and universities to place a suitable candidate in a teach abroad internship. If you are interested in partnering with Terra to provide your students with more study abroad opportunities please call us at (315) 422-2902 or email us at info@terraed.org for more information.

International Schools
If a school is interested in native English-speaking teacher candidates from the United States to teach science, mathematics, computer, or English, the school administration may follow the link below to complete the initial school survey. After the first survey is completed, Terra will contact potential candidates from our partner universities and colleges and provide teacher candidates. We will interview the candidates and after all involved parties agree they will arrange start time for teaching.

The total cost for this service will be $1,000 USD per candidate to the school outside of the United States. We are dedicated to create an interest in the teach abroad program and interview candidates from only highly respected colleges and universities in the United States.

If you are an international school interested in participating in this program, please call us at (315) 422-2902 or email us at info@terraed.org.
