Apply & Start: Immediately
At ICEE, we know that travel is the ultimate university. We are passionate about our tours and embrace the Chinese proverb which states
“It is better to travel 10,000 miles than read 10,000 books.”
We know that travel has the power to change lives, and that is our mission.
As an ICEE Affiliate, you will come to understand and embrace our passion for providing outstanding international experiences for our customers. You’ll see that there should be more to work than just the job that you do. We believe that people are much more inventive when they are inspired, much more productive when they are passionate about what they are doing, and much more resourceful when they are fairly compensated and recognized for their efforts.
We are the International Centre for Exploration & Education (ICEE)
The International Centre for Exploration & Education (ICEE) is a premier provider of small-group study tours for college and university students.

We currently offer tours to Ireland, Italy, Australia, Fiji, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Nepal and are entering new destination markets every year.
