Students will notice less class time and more independent work. The CIEE staff supports students as they adapt to this new style. Professors teach with lectures, group seminars, tutorials, workshops, studios, and laboratory work, depending on the subject. Key concepts and topics are usually introduced in lectures and might be discussed in smaller groups. Students have opportunities to collaborate, and a tutorial system provides support.

Assessment is based on overall performance, including coursework, essays, exams, and participation in seminars.
