Connecting students to today’s most flexible and affordable study abroad experience 

CIEE’s Global Institute Network allows students to design their own study abroad term by enrolling in up to three 6-week Open Campus Program Blocks. Because each location in the Global Institute Network operates on the same schedule, students can move seamlessly between locations for a one-of-a-kind experience tailored to their individual interests and academic requirements.

All Global Institute Network locations enhance students’ intercultural skills and academics by providing study tours and daily co-curricular activities within the community.

Home to thousands of unique program combinations

Students seeking deep immersion may enroll in three consecutive 6-week Open Campus Blocks at one location within the Global Institute Network. While students seeking a rich comparative-learning experience may choose to study at a different location within the network during each 6-week block.

The Open Campus program offers students courses taught in English across multiple disciplines as well as foreign language classes, service learning opportunities, research projects, and international internships.
