Program Overview

*** Please Note: Deadline dates differ based on city and program, please check CEA's website for specific date of your program.***

CEA is a University of Arizona affiliated third-party provider. Students who intend to study abroad on a CEA program should meet with their UA Study Abroad Coordinator at least once before completing the application process.  CEA also has program advisors available to answer any CEA or program specific questions. Students applying to CEA programs must complete BOTH the CEA program specific application and the general UA Study Abroad application. The UA Study Abroad application deadline will match the deadline for your specific CEA program application.

CEA offers the following type of study programs:

Standard Programs: Offered across all CEA locations, standard programs allow you to choose courses within your discipline or subject of interest. Depending on the program you choose, you’ll take courses at a CEA Study Center, a local partner university, or possibly a hybrid of both. The standard programs offer courses taught in English or the host language, providing you options based on your specific level of language ability.

Hybrid Programs: In CEA's hybrid programs offer both the active-learning environment that characterizes our CEA Study Centers, and the opportunity to take courses with other international and local students at our local partner universities. Together, the hybrid option provides a truly integrated experience.

Multi-Site Programs: Learn in multiple cities through a multi-site program. Whether it’s a traveling January Term seminar that gives you the opportunity to spend two to three weeks gaining in-depth, hands-on perspective, or multiple locations paired together over the summer, multi-site programs create an unforgettable learning environment.


Students who intend to study abroad on a CEA program will select a specific program within one of CEA's many locations. Each program offers a different set of course offerings, so selecting your program based on the course availability is very important.
