Amazing Learning Experience in Central Europe

Top 10 things about this program:
1. The people. You will meet so many different people from all around the world. It opened my eyes to how large and diverse the world is.
2. My classmates (also known as were lost mates, travel mates, dinner mates, and more). Going abroad is scary but it gets better with the help of a few friends. There will be other students taking classes, and I got to know some of mine very well. From visiting different coffee shops with one, to spending 5 days in Italy with another. These are people I will remember and stay connected with for a long time.
3. The Food. Its different but its SOO good. Especially the chocolate.
4. The classes. The classes are intensified but very in depth. The professors were also very knowledgable.
5. Getting outside your comfort zone. Sure lets get on a train to Brataslava, Slovakia and spend two days there! GO outside your comfort zone. It will change your life.
6. Travel accessibility. Prague is in the heart of Europe. Its easy to get anywhere from there. I recommend taking advantage of it.
7. Prague. I think this is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. From the beautiful beer gardens to the picturesque river. This city leaves a mark on everyone that visits.
8. You learn. I don't just mean in your classes. You learn how public transportation works. You learn how to attempt to speak parts of Czech. You learn a different culture. You learn more about yourself.
9. The cat cafes. Thats all that needs to be said about that.
10. LEAH. Leah is the CIS abroad program site director in Prague. God bless this woman. She makes the transition into living abroad in Prague smooth. I am forever thankful for her advice, planning skills, planned trips, and life advice. Plus she has really cute kids.

Best summer!

Going to Prague was the best decision I have made! It was a easy course load, and the location is perfect to travel to other European countries. I visited 7 other countries while I was there on weekend trips and during the week off from classes. Would recommend this program to anyone, and Leah the site director Is the best!

Study Abroad w/ Mediterranean Culture

My experience with CIS was truly incredible, largely because this program provides so much "bang" for little "buck." I got to explore Europe, staying for a month in Spain and a month in Rome, as well as visiting southern Italy, Portugal, and France, all for a lump sum under $11,000. CIS has scholarships, and the team that gets you to your housing, to your site, and into your school is really dedicated to keeping you safe and happy. I highly recommend this program, particularly if you want to study in a diverse range of places but stay consistent with administration.

Program: Affordable, Comprehensive Study and Intern Abroad Programs!

The best experience of my life

I don't even know how to properly expressed how much I loved my time abroad with CIS, but I will do my best.

They are extremely organized and very friendly. There is always somewhere there to help you with anything including directions and advice. You get picked up from the airport and you go into Tokyo with all your new friends. This was really great for me because this trip was my first time traveling. Ever.
The day after you go on a tour of where you'll be living and you even go on an excursion! They immerse you immediately and it's honestly the best way to get comfortable in a new country.
The school is beautiful and full of teachers/students excited to teach YOU. I learned to read and write within two weeks!
Being able to go on excursions with the Japanese students gives a new perspective. You get a locals viewpoint but you also get to take it all in as a tourist. You even get to wear a yukata in harajuku and experience a tradiational tea ceremony!

I made the best memories and the BEST friends while in this program. I'd give anything to be able to do it again. I highly recommend CIS to anybody wanting to go abroad!

A summer I’ll never forget

I was fortunate enough to partake in this program Summer 2017, and it changed my life! I loved being able to explore many amazing cities while studying. This program allows you to fully immerse yourself in four countries’ culture. You get the full experience because you get to live in these countries instead of just being a tourist. I would recommend this program to everyone because you really do get the full European Experience in one summer!

Program: European Experience: Ireland, Scotland, England, and Spain
