Overview

Spread your wings on a gap year abroad with CIEE! Build your perfect pre-college experience and focus on language learning, service, or professional development.

BUILD SKILLS FOR LIFE & GO FARTHER WITH CIEE

Master a language. Decide on your major. Gain confidence, global competence, and lifelong skills. Get solid footing and an undeniable edge before diving head-first into college. Once you get on campus, you’ll be more grounded, mature and better prepared for academic success.

Studies show students who take a gap year perform significantly better academically once they get to college. They have higher GPAs, are more engaged on campus, and are more likely to graduate in four years than their peers.

Break free for one semester or a full year — to a single destination or any combination of two! Just think: you’ll return home with great memories, new skills, and a fresh perspective before college.
