Journeys: Faculty-Led Programs with CET

What Are CET Journeys?

CET Journeys are short-term study abroad programs customized for university partners. We work meticulously with university faculty and study abroad offices to create each Journey—at any time throughout the year, and in virtually any location.

Short-term programs offer great educational value. But they also require tremendous time and energy to organize. Let us help. With our extensive staffing resources and longstanding experience administering programs, you can offer your students an exceptional study abroad experience without overburdening your workload. You provide the vision. We do the legwork.


Academic Courses & Lectures

With our access to highly-qualified, top-notch practitioners and faculty, we can complement your course with guest lecturers, or take academics entirely off your plate.


We can arrange housing in apartments, dormitories, hotels, homestays, or guesthouses.


We can arrange any number of group meals you’d like, at a formal restaurant or a casual café.

Local Roommates

Local roommates are what we do best. We can also set up activities with language partners or local buddies.

Activities & Excursions

Tell us the activity you have in mind, or choose from our long list of past successes, many of which include insider’s entree to special events.

International Transport

Our international airline partner provides tickets at market rates. Last minute flight changes? Our service will handle those for you.

Local Transport

Let us pick you up from the airport, take you on excursions, or arrange for your travel from city to city.

Service-Learning & Internships

We can arrange group service projects or individual placements. And we work with our hosts to make sure that all service is relevant and sustainable.

Program Promotion

Need help recruiting students? Our professional promotion team is ready and waiting.

Pre-Departure & Admissions

We can handle admissions from start to finish, or simply provide pre-departure orientation and materials to the group that you admit.


Depending on the location, we can either process visas for you or provide the documentation and information you need to do it on your own.

On-Site Staff Assistance

Our full-time, bilingual staff can handle logistics and manage emergencies, so that you don’t have to.
