Student Teaching Abroad
Student teaching abroad functions very much like NMU’s semester-length exchange programs. Placements are set up one-on-one with NMU partners around the world.
The basic elements are:
Attendance at pre-student-teaching meeting – usually two semesters before you plan to student teach; there is a box on the application to check, marked “Interested in International Assignment.”
Satisfactory completion of major/minor and methods courses.
Approval from the NMU School of Education and your academic adviser(s).
A meeting in International Programs to discuss options and follow-up application requirements.
A completed student teaching application (Education) AND overseas program application.
Communication with the overseas cooperating institution/teacher and university-approved supervisor.
Visa paperwork, immunizations, police clearance, as required.
Pre-departure orientation, coordinated by International Programs.
NMU has formal arrangements with the following organizations and institutions:
Junior Class Learning (JCL Co. Ltd) - Auckland, New Zealand
