What People are Saying

  • "This program offers a great introduction to the city through excursions near or within London. There were many opportunities to go and explore several areas and CIEE places students in a great central location! The staff is incredibly welcoming and helpful and were willing to go above and beyond for their students!"

    Calista P., University of Colorado-Boulder
  • "This program helped me gain a broad knowledge of Identity and representation in media aside from my major Economics. Studying abroad through CIEE helped me understand British Culture, got to network with other people and made life long friends. This program helped brought the independent nature of me being away from home. Activities here are well organized and the staff here friendly and easy to talk to."
