Grant (1994) and Holt (2001) deemed it necessary to provide international teaching experiences to assist in a teacher's preparation program with the overall goal of becoming globally educated. Therefore, the purpose of this qualitative study was to describe four student teachers' experiences related to completing an international student teaching internship in Australia. Student teachers returned to the United States more confident and independent. In addition, each student teacher was exposed to many global issues and became more globally aware while in Australia. Overall, each student teacher felt that the international student teaching experience was life changing.
