From faculty-led programs to custom semester and custom internship programs, , we’re excited to work with you and build a program that exceeds your expectations.

Get started by contacting us and a CIEE Program Manager will help you envision the program and work with you on outlining details and next steps.

Overcoming Obstacles

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

We’re experts at providing innovative, affordable options that match specific academic or internship requirements with a portfolio of program options for every budget.

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

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