“I had a great time studying abroad in Amsterdam with CIEE. The staff was extremely friendly, supportive and helpful getting all the students settled in Amsterdam at the beginning of the semester.” 

-- Claudia, CIEE Study Abroad in Amsterdam, Netherlands 

“If it wasn't for CIEE's wide network and accessibility at so many schools nationwide, I would never have found out about this opportunity. They also provided me with seamless off-campus housing and always made sure we knew they were there to help at anytime.” 

-- Halle, CIEE Study Abroad in Seoul, South Korea 

“My experience in Monteverde with CIEE was amazing. I had no idea what to expect going into the program and it definitely succeeded my expectations. I got to learn a new language, be apart of such a unique culture and community, and make long lasting friends.” 

-- Bianca, CIEE Study Abroad in Monteverde, Costa Rica 

“I loved my time studying abroad in Rennes. I was fortunate enough to live with a wonderful host family who were willing to answer my *many* questions and who were excited to introduce me to their culture. I enjoyed my classes at Université Rennes 2, and felt supported by CIEE staff as I navigated the registration process.” 

-- Megan, CIEE Study Abroad in Rennes, France 

“Studying abroad through CIEE was an outstanding learning and cultural experience. Being able to explore and navigate a new academic setting in an international country through the help of my program was beyond valuable. The support team made readily available to me and my other peers studying abroad was extremely useful in times of uncertainty and confusion.” 

-- William, CIEE Study Abroad in Madrid, Spain
