Bonjour Bonjour

I studied abroad Fall of 2017 for one semester with CEA, and truly it wasn't long enough! From pre-departure to arrival and everything in between, CEA is with you every step of the way. I applied about 7 months in advance which gave me a travel voucher of $750 to help with my flight expenses. The pre-depature was made easy as I was throughly told what to do from the start and what needed to get done before I left. Upon arrival to Paris, I was given multiple presentations to help adapt with the culture and how to deal with unexpected situations which made me feel more comfortable being in a new city that I had never been to before. I took classes at Cours Civilization Français a la Sorbonne Monday-Friday and took French language classes. Overall my experience was one in a lifetime. Expect to make life long friends and have tons of fun on the adventures that CEA takes you on. My favorite thing about Paris was watching the Eiffel Tower sparkle at night. I honestly can't wait to go back and I'm so thankful to have had the experience that I did with CEA!

At CEA, you don't just study while abroad, you study while being so immersed into the local culture and city. I only spent about half of my class periods in the actual classroom - we were always out in the city with our professors (who are brilliant, btw) and learning through seeing and doing! I really recommend CEA in any city, but CEA Paris was amazing as a francophile and lover of French culture.

Above that, CEA provides so much support from the second you apply and even after you return home. I loved CEA Paris that I am returned again as a last semester senior, and the CEA staff have done SO much to make sure I get everything I need out of the program. I didn't expect to receive so much from them the second time around, but the staff has been endlessly helpful and I can't wait to return!

Studying abroad in Prague through CEA was the best thing I ever did. Not only was my experience so amazing because of the city itself, but CEA made everything so easy and smooth. Every staff member is always so kind and willing to help you with whatever you need. Whether it was sending me syllabi for specific classes so I could get courses approved at my home college or responding quickly to questions I had, CEA is always on top of it. They also make the whole package worth it because they have amazing housing around Prague and offer many cultural activities and excursions you can attend for free! They even have several free activities you can do on a weekly basis, like yoga, personal training, and rock climbing. The school they partner with has also added to my study abroad experience because I only have classes 3 days a week, which is typical, so I have time to travel and explore Prague, plus I also get to meet students from all over the world! I very much recommend this program to anyone who is interested in studying abroad.

Studying in the French Riviera was the best choice I have ever made. Since being here, I have traveled to so many different cities and after spending 3 days in a busy, touristy area it truly feels like home once I get back to Antibes. It is a good size city with so much to do, with a beautiful climate and rich culture. It is also a 20 minute train ride each way to Nice or Cannes, very big cities in the South of France giving you even more exposure in the relaxed French culture. The CEA coordinator and fellow group members feel like a family and it is always fun when we get together for excursions or weeknight events. It is also very easy to get to and from the airport to travel while studying here. I traveled almost every weekend, of course determined by finances and school schedule, but this program was very good at promoting weekend travel and our coordinator was always willing to help with planning or giving tips for each city. This is an experience I will never forget and I will only ever speak highly of this program and country!

How can this program be improved?
More help with the visa process would be very appreciated. It is a very heavy and stressful experience and each visa city does things very differently which made it hard for personal help.

CEA was the perfect program for studying in Barcelona because they provide you with all the support you need to succeed in your education and experiencing Barca. They make available multiple activities so you can immerse yourself into the culture. They also have an incredible staff that makes sure you are happy with your classes and housing. CEA was located in the heart of Barcelona making it central for students to explore before and after class. Overall, CEA definitely enhanced my experience abroad!
