Overall Experience
It was great to be in a completely new environment and exposed to new ideas, classes, cultures, and people. It allowed me to learn a lot about a new country and what it takes to adapt to new environments. The experience was definitely worthwhile and an amazing decision. - Cornell University View Entire Review
Language and Culture. You cant get that anywhere else - Villanova University View Entire Review
New friends and a different outlook on life. It was 100% worthwhile - Fordham University View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was beyond worthwhile. I still cannot stop talking about it, and really don't think I ever will. From my experience, I gained a much greater understanding of the Spanish culture and its people. I loved their way of life, and now understand how much different it is from America. My abroad experience ... - Providence College View Entire Review
More global perspective on things. Experience how others live and compare/contrast to life at home and in other places. Learn new political systems and ideas and practice a language. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned to never have expectations, to be much more flexible, learned how to be much more independent, and gained a greater and richer acceptance for multiple types of cultures. It was ABSOLUTELY worthwhile. - Providence College View Entire Review
YES YES YES a thousand times YES! I came back a more independent, confident and just more globally aware human being and without studying abroad I could never have said that. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

Loved the experience not the program - Providence College View Entire Review

About

Options for internships are also available for students who want to gain real-world work experience at a local company.

All courses are complemented with CIEE co-curricular activities and excursions beyond the city to enhance classroom learning and provide intercultural understanding.
