CEA Study Abroad Updates

At CEA, student safety, health, and well-being is our priority. While CEA cannot guarantee the absolute safety of any program participant, we have implemented safety protocols and established emergency response procedures in all our international locations and at our U.S. Headquarters. We will continuously update this page with any news about events abroad. CEA advisors are also available to talk with students and parents; please call 1.800.266.4441 or E-mail us with concerns or questions. Institutional representatives should contact University Relations.

April 03, 2018 : France, Ongoing Strikes

CEA is aware of the ongoing rail strikes in France, and have advised students on-site to check their travel plans and make allowances, as their daily mode of transportation and routes may be impacted.  CEA will continue to monitor the situation and share communications as needed in the coming weeks.

March 25, 2018 : Barcelona, Spain, Barcelona Protests

As a result of the former Catalan president’s arrest in Germany, there are an ongoing protests in downtown Barcelona (Roger de Llúria/Mallorca) near Passeig de Gràcia. Although the protests have tended to be peaceful in nature, CEA highly recommends that all staff and students avoid the area and any large gathering in the city.

Other protests are anticipated to take place in the days to come and CEA will continue to monitor the situation.  At this time, public services and activities are functioning as usual, so these events may not impact day-to-day schedules, but we are asking all to remain informed and stay alert.  Please check with U.S. Consulate and local authorities for any updates and subsequent warnings that may be issued.
