Exploring the World: Student Travel with e-flux Education

IDSVA is a unique institution that offers an unconventional learning experience to its students and faculty. Unlike most universities, IDSVA does not have a physical campus, but rather exists wherever its members are located. During recent residencies in Mexico City, Athens, and Marrakech, students shared their experiences and thoughts about the program.

One student, Maggie McKee, expressed her appreciation for IDSVA’s structure as it allowed her to continue working as an international teacher while also being with her family during the course of three years. She found the program ideal for her lifestyle and career goals. Another student, Monica Bryant, described IDSVA as the perfect PhD program due to its hybrid format of online coursework and global residencies. The flexibility of the program was particularly appealing to her as she could study from anywhere in the world while still having access to the diverse perspectives and experiences offered by IDSVA’s global community.

Rikiesha Metzger highlighted how IDSVA’s blend of online and in-person residencies made it possible for her to travel around the world while still pursuing her degree. She found the experience both captivating and life-changing. Amy Schuessler was grateful for the opportunity to travel as part of the program, particularly emphasizing the magical experience of being in Mexico City. Elliot Bowers emphasized the privilege of studying with fellow students in beautiful locations around the world and being challenged by them through intellectual conversations and discussions.

IDSVA stands out from other programs with its unique approach to education. Those interested in learning more can book a conversation with Molly Davis, Director of Admissions, or contact info [at] for further information on enrollment options for 2024.
