Center for International Education: Study Abroad


Global Student Teaching Program

Want to study abroad but can’t fit it into your semester? 

The Global Student Teaching program, administered by University of Minnesota Morris (UMM), enables Adelphi students who are master’s candidates in the childhood, adolescent or TESOL programs to earn student teaching credits in an international destination and experience education from a new cultural perspective.

Students participating in the Global Student Teaching Program will have two, 8-week student teaching placements: one domestic, one international, for a total of 6 credits of student teaching to meet New York State Teacher Certification Standards.


Students that meet the following criteria are eligible to apply for the GST program:

  • Master’s candidate in the childhood, adolescent or TESOL programs
  • Minimum GPA of 3.0
  • Completion of all prerequisite courses necessary for student teaching
  • Approval of program adviser
  • Approval of Joann Cosentino, Director of the Office of School and University Partnerships


Placements are available for fall, spring, and summer terms, based on location. GST placements last between 8-16 weeks. Students are placed in their area of licensure with experienced teachers from a local school and are supervised by a qualified local administrator.

Global Student Teaching placements are available in the following countries:

  • Australia
  • Ghana
  • Ireland
  • New Zealand
  • Spain

Adelphi students are advised to begin their Global Student Teaching mid-semester (e.g. March for spring and October for fall) and are required to participate for at least eight weeks, which in addition to a domestic placement fulfills the Adelphi student teaching requirement. Students planning to do GST must work diligently to have the EdTPA finished prior to departure. Please visit the Office of School Community Partnerships (Harvey Hall 111) and make an appointment to speak with JoAnn Cosentino, Director, or Mark Bannick, Assistant Director for Clinical Practice.
