This city is honestly the perfect study abroad city. Not only is it student friendly in the fact that it is EXTREMELY inexpensive. It is also very easy to get around with public transportation, it is also very central in Europe only 4 hours from Berlin, Vienna, Bratislava and only 8 hours from Budapest. And also very close to other cities in Europe. It's full of history and has amazing coffee! What's not to like!

How can this program be improved?
Possibly increasing the number of cultural immersion activities available. To truly immerse ourselves in Czech culture.

CEA made sure that everything went smoothly so that we could get the most out of our study abroad experience. They were always readily available and easy to contact when needed, not to mention super friendly. They always had events, activities and programs to keep us engaged, help us meet our fellow study abroad peers and help us learn all about our new home. They even organized trips to help us see more of the Czech Republic. They prioritized our safety and our needs and were always very accommodating. I was housed in a really nice apartment located right near old town and everything was in walking distance. Prague is an absolutely amazing city where there is always so much to do and see, plus beautiful architecture and great food. This was an amazing program and I'm so grateful to have participated.

I was greeted by CEA staff from the moment I arrived at the airport to pick up my bags. All throughout the semester, the staff showed unconditional support in academics, housing, and even travel tips. Professors are very knowledgeable in their subjects and courses offer field studies which allow for learning to take place outside four walls.
CEA also offers Experiential Learning Activities which involve activities within the city in addition to trips to Sitges, Valencia, and even Madrid! No matter where you end up going, you learn so much about the culture, language, and the people.
There's always something to do and somewhere new to go eat. Barcelona itself has SO much to offer that there's no going wrong in choosing Barcelona as your study abroad destination. I don't regret my choice and would recommend it to anyone wishing to study abroad!

How can this program be improved?
Involving more activities with locals.

Studying in Florence was amazing. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to live in such a beautiful place with such a rich history for four months. However, my experience with CEA, which included being talked down to countless times, brushed off repeatedly, and being harassed by two male staff members, was awful. The classes were not hard and weekend traveling was relatively easy, but by the end of the program I was actually afraid while at school.

How can this program be improved?
Better staff. From teachers to directors to people assigned to ensure students' safety and wellbeing, the staff is rude, condescending, and unhelpful.
Response from CEA Study Abroad

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We regret to hear you didn’t have a great experience abroad. We take the student experience very seriously and strive to provide a safe and enriching environment. CEA policies advise faculty, staff, and students how to report any concerning situations and CEA has support resources in place for students who feel unsafe at any time for any reason.

CEA Madrid is an incredible program and I am very glad that I made the decision to study abroad with CEA. They really help you become allocated with your brand new location and take you step by step to make sure you are all set to embark on a semester abroad. That being said, if you ever need anything throughout the semester the on-site contacts are very easy to get ahold of. Also, the weekend trips and Friday excursions were amazing. I highly recommend to attend as many as you can because they are all included in the program cost! I highly recommend CEA.

How can this program be improved?
Getting the dates of the weekend trips farther in advance, as well as class schedules if possible.
Yes, I recommend
