About ISO

Academic well-being is at the heart of TBS Education and our student-centered approach. The TBS Education International Student Office (ISO) understands that moving abroad can be challenging. In addition to the logistics behind moving; finding housing and packing up your things; international students are also faced with finding insurance coverage, visa obligations, banking and healthcare. On top of this comes the challenge of constructing a social network in a foreign country where you may or may not speak the language.

The good news is that the TBS Education International Student Office (ISO) is here to help. We works alongside the academic programs providing practical assistance to prospective and current international students. Working continuously with partners and service providers, ISO answers student inquires and alleviate the administrative burden and stress for our students. Any type of international student can benefit form our services, full-time students or students joining our program withing the framework of university exchange.
