- The TIME OF MY LIFE10/17/17
I miss Barcelona every single day. The reason that I had such an amazing experience is because I went with CEA, who took amazing care of me and helped me along every step of the way. I felt taken care of while I was applying for the program, while I was
applying for the scholarships, and while even while I was abroad. I felt safe in a foreign country because they equipped me with all of the resources I needed to stay healthy, including insurance. I also enjoyed all of the cultural immersion activities that CEA gave us the opportunity to participate in. Making tapas in Spain was a dream come true. I would recommend CEA to any of my friends who would like to go abroad because I want THEM to have the best experience possible, as well!!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
- Highly recommended, our unforgettable stay in Barcelona10/24/16
I came to Barcelona to do a course in CEA, and I had unforgettable experience. To repeat ... We stayed 5 girls in an apartment in the Rambla de Catalunya with company My Space Barcelona who kindly rented for us this amazing apartment, it was also very
close to CEA. We had a feeling like we were leaving in Barcelona before, because the company My Space Barcelona and CEA, gave us the feeling of being at home, cosy and comfortable place! The apartment had 3 large bedrooms and 3 balconies overlooking the Rambla Catalunya, the heart of Barcelona. The apartment was spacious and well equipped, plus we had cleaning once a week. Big Deal!!! It was very interesting Spanish courses and I learned a lot! For now, I am sure that I will do my Master here in Barcelona, renting one of the amazing apartments in My Space Barcelona!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
- Best Semester of My Life04/13/15
Going abroad to Barcelona through CEA was the best decision I have ever made. CEA was almost 10 grand cheaper than going through my school and I got into all of the 5 business classes that I needed to take. They were so helpful throughout the whole experience
from right when I was accepted until the day I left Spain. The apartment I lived in was beyond beautiful and had two balconies where I could see the top of Sagrada Familia from. The CEA building is in a great spot where you can leave in between classes to grab lunch or go shopping on Las Ramblas. The staff was so helpful with getting me dentist & doctor appointments as well as accommodating me into a room on site where I could have a web cast interview. I highly recommend going through CEA in Barcelona or any other destination for that matter.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
- Why wouldn't you Go with CEA?02/24/15
Studying abroad in Barcelona is the best choice I have ever made, and doing with CEA only made my time in Spain even better. The staff at CEA, both in the US and Barcelona, always keep the students as their main focus. They work hard to help us make the
best out of our experience from planning group trips, teaching us about the local culture, to ensuring we are having the time of our lives. The professors are very diverse Europeans and have unique perspectives than instructors in the US. CEA-Barcelona's home building is in the middle of everything and my apartment could not have been better. I met so many new people through CEA, it really is true that your friends are what makes the experience unforgettable. I would highly recommend CEA as a program to any prospective students- they are always available if you have a problem, the staff and professors work hard to enhance the experience. This is not a program where you will be left alone to fend for yourself in a foreign country. Honestly nothing negative to say. The best 4 months of your life!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
