I am writing this review as a parent. I am completely sold on this program. I feel my daughter was supported by the local rep and that she was in a safe environment. The program is organized and offered a lot of cultural activities I did not expect. One small issue I raised was handled immediately and satisfactorily. This program is run by experienced, caring people and I highly recommend it.
Once in a lifetime experience!

Initially I had chosen this program because of the ease of transferring classes back to my home university but was timid about going to a less popular study abroad destination but having completed the program there is no other place I would have enjoyed more. The entire program was awesome and exceeded my expectations all around! Being a smaller sized program enabled us to do so much more and get to know everyone better. CIS and our site director in particular were extremely helpful and involved with all the students making being in a foreign country much more comforting. Prague is amazing and has such a great history and culture unlike any other country making it hard not to fall in love. I highly recommend this program to anyone looking to study abroad!
Best experience of my life!

Spending 9 weeks of my summer in Barcelona, Spain was one of the best decisions of my life. CIS helped me so much transitioning into a new culture with a new language. I enjoyed all of the activities, day trips, and weekend trips planned that helped students fully immerse into the culture and try new things. I loved living in a home-stay because it allowed me to learn so much more about the Spanish culture as well as try authentic food. I was very comfortable in my living situations. I have made such a strong bond with my host family as well as other locales I have come to know during my time there.

An unforgettable semester

My study abroad experience with CISabroad was truly one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I was able to make lasting friendships, experience an amazing new culture, study a new language, and have a deeper appreciation for diversity. While living a block away from the Sagrada Familia, I attended class at the University of Barcelona. I was able to expand my Spanish skills while meeting other students from the United States, as well as students from all over the world. With CISabroad, I also got the opportunity to go on cultural excursions to other parts of Spain. Our CISabroad mentors were very helpful and provided us with resources so we could make the most of our time in Barcelona. I highly recommend this to anyone considering studying abroad! My semester in Barcelona was an experience I'll never forget.

Summer in Barcelona
Submitted by Lauren Ferguson - University of Tampa | October 19, 2016
This past summer I studied abroad in Barcelona, Spain for six weeks. During these six weeks I met amazing people through the program that I am still in touch with today. This program also allowed me to grow and mature as an individual by placing myself in unfamiliar situations. I was able to experience a culture that I would never be able to find in the United States, thanks to program sponsored events such as dance and cooking classes. I highly recommend studying abroad, especially with CISabroad.
