We're pleased to offer semester pricing for Open Campus programs starting at $6,500. CIEE is committed to preparing global citizens for today's workforce and tackling the barriers that prevent students from studying abroad. Providing affordable programs is key to these efforts, and supports our pledge to Generation Study Abroad™.
The CIEE Open Campus program at our Global Institute – Rome offers maximum flexibility to engage and experience study abroad in your own way. Customize the program to your interests, aspirations, and degree requirements: Take one, two, or three six-week blocks for your perfect amount of intensive study and cultural engagement, select your academic track from five options, then choose from a range of courses and subject areas. In Rome, no matter how you build your program, you'll surround yourself with the language, culture, and people of the Eternal City. You'll have plenty of chances to get out and see Rome and Italy up close during included excursions and Study Tours.
Plus, you'll have time to learn how to make fresh pasta, visit the historic center of Rome, one of the Unesco Heritage Site, the Vatican Museums, St. Peters and much more.
Students can also opt to combine locations across the four CIEE Open Campus locations – in Berlin, London, Paris and Rome – to create a truly individualized study abroad experience.
The Open Campus Program teaches classes taught on a unique six-week academic block system, which results in courses that are taught more intensively than in a traditional semester-length course. Student should be prepared for a more focused academic experience with longer class sessions. Choose one, two or three academic blocks during either the fall or spring semester. Each block is six weeks long, and can be combined with blocks in the Open Campus program in Berlin, London and Paris. Students typically take two courses per block, one of which might be an Academic Project (internship, service learning project, or independent research).
Stay in Rome for the duration of your study abroad – or add on blocks in other CIEE Open Campus locations in Berlin, London and Paris and experience more of Europe in CIEE's unique Global Scholar program.
Global Scholars are students who combine sessions in the Open Campus programs in Berlin, London, Paris, and Rome. To amplify and maximize the experience, all Global Scholars participate in Global Scholars Online (GSO), a virtual course that will accompany you on your journey to multiple CIEE Global Institutes. GSO will help you squeeze the most learning and benefit out of your time abroad. It will support you in connecting with peers, making sense of cultural differences, and transitioning between multiple host cultures.
