CIEE Faculty-Led and Custom Programs inspire students, enhance curriculum, fit your schedule and budget, and meet the academic needs of your students. Here’s how:

Creating Top-notch Curricula

Study abroad programs aren’t one-size-fits-all. Sometimes it’s simply best to build a program that fits your needs. CIEE: Council on International Educational Exchange has the experience, resources, expertise, and in-country infrastructure to help you design a once-in-a lifetime program that will meet all of your objectives in a fully immersive, overseas framework. From Maymester and summer to term breaks and full semesters, you’ll have a program that exceeds your expectations. Get started by filling out what you can of our Program Development Questionnaire and a CIEE Manager will help you fill in any of the blanks.

Overcoming Obstacles

We know cost, curriculum, and culture are the three main barriers that prevent students from studying abroad, and we’ll help knock down each one.

We’ll help you design a program that keeps your students’ academic progression on a timely track, regardless of discipline.

We’re sensitive to the needs of students from varied cultural and financial backgrounds, and those who typically don't consider studying abroad like athletes, freshmen, sophomores, and students whose parents didn’t study abroad.

We’re experts at providing innovative, affordable options that match specific academic plans and areas of interest.

Adding Value

With a network of Study Centers in multiple countries around the globe, resident staff members who are experts in their fields, and more than 200 established Study Abroad programs, we offer a portfolio of resources that ensures maximum value for you and your students. Our longstanding relationships with local communities can also help keep costs down. And, our competitive pricing includes medical insurance, 24/7 on-site support from CIEE staff members, and a collaborative planning process that eliminates potential budget pitfalls.

With CIEE, you'll also get valuable marketing support during the recruitment process. We supply customized advertising materials and other valuable tools - all included with every program - to help you get the word out to students.
