International experience has been considered as a good opportunity for teachers to develop their professional development. Teachers while working abroad experience new teaching styles, curriculum, lesson plans, and lesson materials. Upon return home they implement them into their circumstances. This study investigates the role of overseas experience in professional development of teachers. 55 teachers who had at least a five-year international experience had a questionnaire and it was found that overseas experience deeply influences professional development of teachers.
