CET Academic Programs is a study abroad organization that has been developing and delivering innovative educational programs abroad since 1982. Originally “China Educational Tours,” CET began operations in Beijing, later expanding to other locations around the world. Today, CET offers a varied portfolio of semester, summer, and short-term customized programs around the world for college, high school, pre-college, and gap year students.
We don’t offer cookie-cutter curricula. Each program is creatively designed to fit the strengths of the location, the interests of our students, and the needs of our partners. We are nimble, responsive, accessible, and not afraid to try new things.
We believe in making study abroad accessible to all students. We recruit and actively support academically qualified students of all races, religions, origins, abilities, gender identities, and sexual orientations. Learn more.
We regard each student as our only student. We answer every question and respond to every call. We ask students for their maturity and proactivity, and in return, we provide unwavering help and support.
Our curricula are collaboratively designed with input from our Faculty Advisory Committees and US partners. Strong academic leadership at headquarters and onsite means our focus on excellence extends to everything we do, from policies to practice. Learn More.
Local friendships are the stepping stone to immersion, so we pair almost every student with a local roommate. Roommates are an integral part of our programs, both inside and outside the classroom. Learn More.
