The Education Abroad Network (TEAN):  At The Education Abroad Network (TEAN), we love helping students make "studying abroad a reality." We thrive on providing personalized attention, quick answers, and our trademark preparation. We've been running study-based programs specializing in the South Pacific and Pacific Rim with our partner universities since 1995. Beginning in Australia with our program Study Australia, expanding to Study New Zealand and now Study Asia, The Education Abroad Network offers more overseas opportunities for study than ever before. With that kind of experience behind us and passion driving us, we know how to design, deliver, and service simply the best educational opportunities abroad. While we have certainly grown since 1995, The Education Abroad Network is still a relatively small, boutique organization that is responsive and flexible to the needs of students. We understand that each participant has different objectives and motives for his or her semester overseas, and we strive to add value to each and every experience, one student at a time.  We offer a variety of summer, semester, year, and internship programs.
