Gap at CET Shanghai

Why choose Gap at CET?

We understand the specific needs and interests of gap students.

Our gap programs go beyond college credits and preparedness, though they cover that too. Each site provides a unique platform to explore your interests, future goals and plans, and helps you develop skills critical for success moving forward (e.g. independence, time management, good study habits, etc.).

We have 35+ years of experience in study abroad.

CET Academic Programs began in Beijing with our first cohort on the ground in 1982. These days, we send about 2,000 students abroad annually. Over the years, we have built effective curricula, strong networks of passionate educators and staff, and comprehensive risk management strategies that prioritize health & safety, especially in response to COVID-19.

Our programs are designed with CET values in mind.

There are a few things we don’t compromise on: flexibility, environmental sustainability, diversity and inclusion, student support, academic excellence, and local roommates. Read more about CET’s mission and values.
