An international undergraduate design project is reviewed in this paper. The International Virtual Design Studio (IVDS) project is a joint project among Queen's University, Middle East Technical University, and Union College. The objective of IVDS is to provide a collaborative design experience to students in different international locations. This paper is an overview of the program and its challenges, as well as a collaboration of ideas and suggestions collected from the IVDS participants and IVDS Coordinators through surveys. This paper complements the previous publication on the IVDS program in which the focus was on the program from the IVDS Coordinators' point of view. These two paper should be beneficial for the organizers of current and future international student design projects.
