Our directors are extremely knowledgeable about their programs and cities, and will share information about the program, provide you with helpful tips, and answer any questions you may have. You will also have an opportunity to take part in an online webinar and connect with others in the group, reflect on what you want to get out of the program, and learn what others in the group would like to accomplish. And if that’s not enough, once you touch down in Mumbai, you will receive an on-site city orientation with other interns on the program. This may feature a tour of the neighborhood, where to shop for food, tips on affordable living, an introduction to the transit system, language crash courses, and even cooking classes that take advantage of the best local fare.

CIEE’s aim for the pre-departure orientation is simple, to help you understand more about the program, and identify your objectives so that you arrive well-informed and return home having made significant progress towards your goals. Don’t worry - you’ll arrive in Mumbai with the knowledge to succeed.
