Group Site Visits
Before arriving at the 2012 Annual Conference in Shanghai, consider visiting a CIEE Study Center. Visiting a Study Center is the best way to learn about the location, meet on-site CIEE staff and faculty, and speak with students about their experience abroad with CIEE. In 2012, CIEE will be offering site visits November 9–13, prior to the Annual Conference.
Each Study Center site visit is designed for participants to gain first-hand knowledge about the on-site facilities, meet with faculty, resident staff, and students, and acquire a better understanding of the culture in which the programs operate.
Schedules include visits to the host institution at which the program is based, class attendance, visits to homestays and/or dormitories, participation in student excursions, and meetings with CIEE faculty, resident staff, and students to provide participants with an in-depth view of each program.

Registration Deadlines and Visa Processing
Due to the increased popularity of CIEE’s Group Site Visits and CIEE’s need to ensure that participants are getting the visit that is best suited to their needs, persons wishing to attend a CIEE Group Site Visit will now be asked to submit an application. CIEE will review applications and accept participants based on a set criteria. The group site visit leader will notify participants of their acceptance early enough for them to obtain visas, book flights, and make any other necessary arrangements. In some cases, if a site visit has closed, applicants will be offered the option of attending the site visit at full cost.
The 2012 Group Site Visit registration fee is $200 for CIEE and Academic Consortium members and $400 for non-members. The registration fee includes a single room at a local hotel, all meals during the site visit, and all intra-country transportation.
The registration deadline for all Pre-Shanghai Conference group site Visits is August 1, 2012.
