I met a lot of very interesting and fun people that taught me a lot during the courses. I enjoyed traveling through Europe and seeing new places.

Everything was amazing and I learned so much - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I liked living in an apartment rather than a dorm. It made me more independent and forced to try harder to meet people which was challenging at first but worth it in the end. Going to the food market really helped my language skills. - Quinnipiac University View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with CEA Global Education: Barcelona, Spain
I gained a confidence with a second language that I never thought I would have had. This study abroad program opened my eyes to the magic of traveling and meeting people who live in other countries, faced with different realities.

Yes I learned a lot about Barcelona Culture, myself, and especially an outside look on American culture - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I learned so much about Barcelona's culture. Also, I traveled a lot so I learned about other cultures and figuring things out on my own. It was absolutely worth while. - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review

Yes, Amazing experiences! - Texas A&M - College Station View Entire Review
Absolutely. This semester has helped me realize so much more about myself, about who I am, what I need as a person, and how I fare when thrown into uncomfortable situations. Being in Europe has opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities as far as post-undergrad goes. I could really see myself moving here soon after ... - Queens University of Charlotte View Entire Review
