About Us

Inside Study Abroad™ is an online educational hub and community for aspiring and seasoned international education and study abroad professionals.

Inside Study Abroad Founder

Brooke Roberts, MA


I'm what you might call an international education veteran. I've done a lot in my career - from low-paid grad assistant, to road warrior, to program development and onsite management, to building a study abroad office completely from scratch, to running the largest marketing platform for global programs in the world. 

But it wasn't always an easy journey. Initially, I struggled to launch my own career in international education applying for 75+ jobs without an offer of even an interview. I knew our field needed a more targeted resource and clear path to the professional world of meaningful travel.   

I built Inside Study Abroad to become the go-to resource and ONLY internship program for aspiring global education professionals.
