CIEE (the Council on International Educational Exchange) was established in 1947 and is a major US provider of study exchange programmes worldwide. It is widely recognised as a leader in the field of international education, offering US students opportunities to study in 40 different countries on 200 different programmes. The Council represents a consortium of 350 member institutions of higher education in the USA. CIEE has operated in London since 1986. CIEE works through long-term partnerships with selected institutions. In London these are with UCL, SOAS and Westminster. For the delivery of short-term summer courses, CIEE has up until now worked through a contractual arrangement with the Foundation for International Education, London. A recent strategic decision has been made to grow CIEE study abroad provision in London and to establish it on a more independent basis. The Institute is able to draw on existing experienced CIEE staff, and aims to offer programmes both of semester-length (up to 18 weeks) and summer-based (up to twelve weeks). Students will select a specific study track combination of courses to follow. Academic study tours, excursions and special activities are built around the relevant academic study track. CIEE plans to offer study tracks in the following areas: Literature and Culture; Business; Communication, Journalism and New Media; Health Sciences; International Relations and Political Science. In addition, CIEE intends to offer summer courses in the areas of British Culture, Comparative Public Health, and Business and Culture.
