With planning and awareness, living abroad can be a very healthy, safe, and rewarding experience for you. 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.

  • I think this course was fantastic! Highlight of my education abroad, it really allowed me to engage with my surroundings and as the course went on I was able to take things that I learned through this course with me on my weekend travels. I will speak highly of this course when I return home and the positive impact it had on my abroad experience.
