Program Overview

Situated on the equator, Singapore is a global financial center and a major business and transportation hub for the Southeast Asian region. Given the city-state's importance on an international scale, "The Garden City" is the perfect place to take your studies abroad! Spend one six-week block (or up to two blocks) of your summer diving deeply into Asia's diversity while honing your academic skills and networking with international contacts. 

When class is in session, you will learn from instructors at CIEE Singapore in courses across a wide range of subject areas, including business, communication, community health, international relations, STEM, and more. Outside the classroom, you'll have plenty of time to explore Singapore's cultural and architectural heritage, world-class food scene, suburban farming, and iconic landmarks, like Merlion Park, which is home to a 70-ton merlion statue! 

Build Your Summer Adventure

 Select one or two six-week blocks at any CIEE Open Campus Block location. Stay in Singapore for both blocks or go mobile and spend your second block in Berlin, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Copenhagen, Dublin, Kyoto, London, Madrid, Monteverde, Paris, Rome, Santiago, Shanghai, Sydney, or Yucatan.
