Health + Safety
CIEE knows one of your big concerns, as a parent, is the welfare of your son/daughter as they embark on their studies abroad. You can feel confident that CIEE, with its 65 years of experience, is committed to offering healthy and safe study experiences.
CIEE's approach to health and safety is fourfold. First, CIEE conducts a careful safety evaluation of every program it runs. Next, CIEE provides comprehensive and realistic information to prospective applicants so that they may make informed decisions as to participation. Then, when the students arrive on site, CIEE conducts a thorough orientation that includes tips on reducing risk and handling difficult situations should they arise. Finally, program staff continuously monitors local conditions in order to provide guidance to participants throughout their stay.
CIEE has partnered with experts in producing resources that address health concerns for students who are thinking about studying abroad and, as a founding member of the Interassociational Advisory Committee on Safety and Responsibility in Study Abroad, is committed to the operation of safe and secure study experiences.
