CIEE Gap Year Abroad programs were designed to be shorter, more flexible and affordable to allow you to maximize your time and combine several study abroad experiences with personal travel, online learning or anything else you may have going on before heading to college.
Next semester, you could be practicing your French skills at a local cheese shop in Paris, team up with a local nonprofit organization in Berlin, or gain professional experience following conservationists in the Costa Rican cloud forest!
CIEE is accredited by the Gap Year Association.
