I can't imagine being abroad without CEA!!!

10/10

CEA is an amazing company. I don't think that my time abroad would have been nearly as amazing without CEA. They handled all of the logistics for us. First, they provided housing and showed us around the town so we could get our bearings. My coordinator, Krisitin, was amazing. She taught us everything from how the buses work, where the best day trips are, where to buy groceries and how to fit in with locals. She is truly amazing!
We did so many excursions with CEA. They took us to places in southern France that are difficult to get to by public transportation. They provided us with a bus, food and a tour guide.
Seriously the best experience that I've ever had. I am SO thankful that I chose to study abroad with CEA.

How can this program be improved?

The university that we attend is alright, but could be improved. It is a bit disorganized, but it is really amazing to be able to go to classes with people form so many different countries. The students in my international business course represent over 15 countries - it is so amazing!

Amazing Experience Abroad

10/10

CEA does a great job with their program! Everything was always so organized and it was really easy to contact them or get help if we needed. Our housing was in some of the best locations in Prague, which made the whole experience that much better. There were excursions we could sign up for which were really fun and it was extremely easy to travel. Going to school with people from all over the world was such an amazing opportunity and it was so fun to get to know people from such different backgrounds. If I could study abroad again I definitely would and I had some of the best four months of my life here.

How can this program be improved?

Overall this program was great but I wish CEA had a few more activities students could sign up for, like trips out of the Czech Republic.

Fall 2017 Abroad AMAZING

9/10

I really enjoyed my semester abroad. CEA gives amazing opportunities to explore within Spain and outside of Spain. The excursion to Morocco was a real highlight of the trip. There is so much culture and always something to do or see in Sevilla! There are many beautiful sights to see in Sevilla. The Cathedral, Plaza de España, Alcazar, and more. The Spaniards are so welcoming and it is a perfect place to practice spanish! The food is amazing and the architecture and people match it.

How can this program be improved?

I think having more activities to integrate the students at CEA. I also would suggest that there should be a greater variety of students recruited. There was a large amount of students from the same university.

Sierra Best Experience Ever

10/10

Choosing to go abroad was such an exciting and life-changing decision, and CEA made the transition and duration of my stay SO amazing. From the second you sign up for the program, you have an incredible and constant support system that is available to answer any questions and offer advice. They even have friendly staffers that pick you up from the airport upon arrival and personally take you to your apartment. But it doesn't stop there. The teachers are an incredible resource of knowledge and experience, and I genuinely enjoyed going to class every day to learn from them. Barcelona itself is one of the most exciting and beautiful places on Earth, but can feel overwhelming sometimes and the staff does a fantastic job of making it feel a little more accessible. I enjoyed every second of my study abroad experience, and it wouldn't have been possible without CEA.

How can this program be improved?

I wish the program could be even longer, I never wanted to go home.

Chance of a lifetime with CEA

10/10

Studying abroad is the chance of a lifetime. You get to travel the world while also learning new cultures and creating memories and experiences with people you will never forget.

CEA was super helpful with answering all my questions I had before going abroad. They were there every step of the way, which made me feel more comfortable about going somewhere I had never gone before. They make the application process simple and help you figure out which program is best for you.

I loved the staff at CEA Rome Center. They definitely made it feel like a home away from home. They were helpful, kind, understanding, and funny. Before I went on my weekend trips with friends, I would ask the staff if they had been where I was planning to go, because they usually knew cool local spots and places I wouldn't have thought to look for on my own.

I took interesting classes like Business Ethics in a Global Context, Cross-Cultural Management, Italian, and Social history of the Italian Mafia. The classes were small and hands-on, and I enjoyed both the professors and the things we learned about. It was a very cool learning environment that I will never forget!

I am so grateful that I studied abroad with CEA!
