CEA in Action

Health, Safety, and Wellness Abroad

Health, Safety, and Wellness Abroad

At CEA, the health, safety, and well-being of our students are our highest priorities. We believe that a successful study or intern abroad program begins before a student gets on an airplane. Our Health & Safety Team is here to support your student from the start as they prepare for their time abroad. All CEA students have access to health and wellness resources and advising, and our Health & Safety Team is available to confidentially discuss each student’s personal health and wellness concerns. Every CEA program includes a travel health insurance plan through Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI) and with this plan, students can access a custom portal to download their insurance card, find medical or mental health care providers abroad, and access important documentation for their travels. In the event of an emergency, students and families can contact CEA 24/7 for support. Please see our Health & Wellness page for tips, insurance brochures, FAQs, and more.

Financial Options'

Financial Options

CEA strives to provide high quality programming at an accessible cost. The cost of studying or interning abroad varies according to many factors—but most students can find programs that align with costs at their home campus. All CEA programs include the cost of tuition, housing, international insurance, onsite support, excursions, and so much more, making our programs easy to plan and budget for. CEA offers scholarships, grants, flight vouchers, and other options to help reduce the overall cost of attendance. Your student also has the option to set up interest-free payment plans. Lastly, your student can check with their home institution regarding potential financial aid options.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Studying and interning abroad allows students to experience learning outside of the traditional classroom setting, gain international experience, and expand their sense of cultural awareness. Students who study or intern abroad experience new cultures, meet people from all over the world, and make lifelong friendships while expanding their personal and professional network. Ask 100 students why they studied abroad, and they’ll each give you a different answer. And we appreciate that! The reasons to study or intern abroad are endless.
All CEA study and intern abroad programs require that students take at least one course for academic credit. Our quality assurance protocols are designed to align all courses with U.S. higher education standards. Your student can speak to their study abroad or academic advisor at their home institution to understand how the credits will count toward their degree requirements.
