Global Leaders and Scholars Program
Discover a better path to a bachelor’s degree in the U.S.
Your Pathway to a U.S. Degree
CIEE is partnering with Clark University to offer the Global Leaders and Scholars Program (GLS). This unique university pathway program is designed to prepare international students for academic success in the U.S.
- Builds confidence in English, academics, and the ability to succeed in an American classroom
- Provides practical, career-focused learning, academic support, and real-world internship opportunities
- Develops a social and academic network of peers and alumni from around the world, including U.S. students studying abroad
- Guarantees admission with sophomore standing to Clark University in the U.S. upon successful completion of the one year program
How does GLS Work?
1. Start in Berlin or Shanghai
Spend your first college year at one of Global Leaders and Scholars’ global locations — the prestigious ENCU campus in Shanghai or the CIEE Global Institute in Berlin — immersed in the rich history and culture of the host city, while following an academically rigorous program of study.
2. Transition to Clark University in America
Continue your studies the following summer in the U.S. at Clark University, in Worcester, Mass. The summer program provides continued English language instruction and immersion in American culture to prepare you for academic success and social integration into the United States.
3. Earn Your Degree the American Way
Pursue the balance of your undergraduate degree at Clark, studying business, the humanities, or science. All programs are taught in the American classroom style and Clark will provide you with academic support, career exploration and work experience with U.S. employers.
