Learning how to become an adult through study abroad

I am getting better at Spanish and learning about the culture, but I am also getting to know myself and develop on another level that has never been available to me. Studying abroad and CEA is helping me mature as an adult and giving me cultural awareness to enhance my skills and perspectives as a professional in my career.

A totally supported experience

CEA offers the option to make your abroad experience whatever you want or to follow their guided programs for a totally supported experience.

I am taking a history of Barcelona class which pushes us to go learn more about the city and uses the city as a resource for learning. CEA offers afternoon, day, and weekend programs that are a great way to explore without having to plan anything yourself, and they are included with the price of the program. Having Fridays off also allows you to plan any other trip you would like.

The Best Semester of my Life

I couldn't be happier that I chose to go through CEA. My school didn't offer a Barcelona program so I was lucky that CEA did. It was almost 10 grand cheaper than my school, and the cost included my beautiful apartment that had a balcony overlooking the Sagrada Familia. I was able to take 5 business courses while abroad, all of which were easily transferred back to my home institution with no problems whatsoever. The staff was so helpful with getting me doctor and dentist appointments while I was there, setting up a room for me to have a Skype interview between my classes, and were always there to answer any questions I had. They offer day and weekend trips such as FCBarcelona games and trips to Madrid, you put your money down first when you sign up but then get it back later in the semester. I learned so much in my classes and our professors took us to some businesses in Barcelona to learn more about the business culture there. Barcelona is a great place to study abroad because it has the beach, amazing architecture, friendly locals, warm weather, and offers a lot for college students to do. It's an easy place to travel to and from also. CEA also gives you different housing options: residence halls, home stays and apartments. Going through CEA was the best decision I made and I wish I could do it all over again.

Everyone must go once

This is one of those experiences that everyone must do at least once! Study abroad. Any program you choose will be a great experience; but CEA is one of the best! The people are great and the opportunities and events are great.

I really enjoy the CEA program

I really enjoy the CEA program in Barcelona because it provides the perfect balance between allowing students to be independent, while offering helpful guidance and providing planned trips that are included in the payment of the program.

Amazing experience with CEA

Having a wonderful through CEA. They provided me with an amazing apartment, roommates I will be friends with when I return to the States, and flexibility to plan my own schedule outside of class as I am travelling to Pamplona, Paris, and Ibiza all in the month I am in Spain. Go with CEA!
