CIEE Portfolio Expansion and Enhancements

Our expanded 2025 Asia-Pacific portfolio offers a selection of programs across ten CIEE Asia-Pacific locations to meet the needs of every student regardless of budget, academic schedule, or academic major. The portfolio includes:

  • Direct Enroll Study Abroad Programs - Through our partnerships with leading universities to offer direct enroll programs, your students have access to thousands of courses in all majors, including high-demand study areas such as engineering, technology, and business. Students learn from leading experts in their fields at host institutions, complemented with CIEE co-curricular activities and excursions that enhance classroom learning and provide intercultural understanding. By studying alongside local students, participants will cultivate cross-cultural understanding and forge connections that last a lifetime.
  • CIEE Semester In Study Abroad Programs – Your students have the flexibility to enroll in CIEE courses or those offered by our local university partner with minimal prerequisites, and no language requirements.
  • CIEE Open Campus Block Study Abroad Programs –  CIEE’s Open Campus Block Study Abroad Network includes 17 locations around the world, including four in the Asia-Pacific region, all offering classes on a universal six-week calendar. This allows students to complete a semester in one location (as nearly three-quarters do) for deep immersion in a single country. Or students can choose a comparative learning experience to compare and contrast cultures or context. CIEE Open Campus programs offer experiential learning for students seeking to combine classwork with an internship or research project, and they are ideal for students from quarter schools with challenging academic calendars.
  • CIEE Summer and J-Term Programs - CIEE will offer 20+ Summer and J-Term programs in the Asia-Pacific region, offering students from all majors and socio-economic backgrounds flexible and affordable study abroad opportunities. 
  • CIEE Summer Global Internship Programs - Eight-week summer internship placements are available in eight Asia-Pacific locations and students can search the online CIEE database of internship placements to find the perfect match for their academic and professional aspirations.
