Background video transcript: Countries around the world scroll up and down the screen. A shot of bright graffiti along a wall cuts to a person opening a door to outside. A group of students wave bubble wands as we follow someone walking down a path through a gate, patting children passing by.

Students smile as they look from a hillside and take a boat ride. A collage features cows, students at a conference, a student in Tanzania, ancient ruins, and a student on a bridge. A student waves to the camera while riding in a van. People perform archaeology on stone structures, and perform chemistry experiments.

Two people canoe across a body of water on a sunny day, as we cut to a person looking at a waterfall and adults dancing with children. A person captures dancers wearing highly colorful costumes on their camera. A person rides a camel, which cuts to someone teaching a young child how to use a camera. Lanterns are lit and float to the sky, as someone leans back to look face up into the camera.

Text "Education Abroad" and Western logo appear as a group watches a sunset from the beach.
