Here's what you get when you study abroad with CEA in Paris:
Get out and explore! Excursions are offered for most semester, year, and summer programs*. Semester students are typically offered three excursions and summer study students are typically offered two excursions. You'll receive a calendar of excursions during orientation; here are a few day and overnight excursions we've offered in the past.
*In an effort to offer lower - cost internship options and support you in maximizing your professional development in a condensed timeframe, summer internship programs do not include excursions.
Take your immersion level one step further and live amongst local and international university students in a Parisian Foyer. Residing in a Foyer gives you the unique opportunity to get to know focused and serious peers, as well as to join a strong social community of students interested in language, culture and exchange. If you are like-minded in your approach to academics and seek the authentic lifestyle of a French student in Paris, choosing a Parisian Foyer can help you achieve a culturally and linguistically fulfilling experience abroad. (Additional fees apply if selected as first choice on the housing preference form.)
While CEA highly recommends that you choose one of our Paris housing options provided, you also have the option to arrange independent housing. If your ideal housing scenario includes living in a particular neighborhood, having specific amenities or living with a specific person as your roommate, then independent housing could be just the ticket for you.
Use the online housing application form to request permission for this option no later than the application closure date. If your request is approved, you will receive a rebate for your housing payment, however CEA will not provide you with any assistance setting up independent housing. Keep in mind, rebates are not granted to students who move out of their CEA housing or choose to pursue independent living arrangements after the application closure date.
