Overall Experience
I learned to value personal time and free time again. I learned there are many different ways of doing things even in what are thought to be similar cultures. I learned that just because a country is westernized it doesn't say almost anything about the actual place or culture. I learned I love to explore. I learned I can be on m... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CIEE: Brussels - Summer Buisness, Communications and Culture
This program was a life changer for me. Belgium was an extremely inviting host country. The program administration with Michelangelo, Chloe, and Yamina were wonderful and a necessary resource. The interns Anna, Casey, and Kim were also additional resources and younger for personal connections. My housing was located in a safe pa... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was worthwhile! I had many opportunities to see myself grow as an individual and be challenged by living on my own. My homestay was slightly unusual in that my host father traveled a lot for work so I often had the place to myself, so I definitely got experience in living on my own and providing for myself. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I am a much more openminded person after my experience abroad. I now understand where international students are coming from when they come to my school. I also feel like I can tackle anything since I lived in a foreign country which speaks a different language. I'm also less judgemental toward other people in general because... - Purdue University View Entire Review
I learned how to be more independent and mature from my experiences abroad. My major is communications with a focus on intercultural communications, and going to a city where there were people from all over the world was amazing. Being in the EU capital, it was a dream come true! - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
I gained an experience that I will always remember and I learned more than I can recount here. It was definitely worthwhile. - Millsaps College View Entire Review
Past Review A Bruxxelles
My experience in Brussels was definitely worthwhile. I'd say the most important thing I took away was the connections and friendships I forged with the local students. I tried hard to not always hang out with people from my program but make as many European friends as possible. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
These is a whole new world out there. The feelings cannot be explained in words. - Miami University of Ohio View Entire Review

About

As a center of international finance and politics and the home to stunning architecture, a vibrant arts scene, and vast cross-section of cultures, Brussels is as fascinating a city as it is beautiful. And given its resources, it’s also the perfect site to spend your summer examining the relationship between business, politics, and the rapidly changing face of new media and communication.
Through language study, cultural excursions, and internships with local and international organizations, you’ll deepen your understanding not only of the field of communications, but also its European society and culture.

Study abroad in Brussels and you will:
- Choose from courses in business, communications, and international relations taught in English; undertake a for-credit internship
- Immerse yourself in Belgian and European culture and society through day excursions to places such as Bruges and the caves of Han; educational activities such as attending French films and visiting local museums; and an excursion to another country such as France, the Netherlands, or Germany
