Global Campus in Dublin Connecting Students to International Higher Education Because education shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all, we’ve developed a robust catalog of diverse study abroad program options to better meet the needs of today’s universities and their students. Our Global Education Network comprises three well-defined learning environments, each contributing distinct advantages that together offer college students greater depth of choice in study abroad programming and services.

Global Campus

Global Alliance

The Global Partners

Our signature, purpose-built learning environment is designed to engage students directly in the local culture.

This new model of international higher learning reflects academic integration and collaboration with an international institution rooted in academic integrity.

We strategically choose these local institutions of higher learning to provide complementary, culturally immersive programs through direct enrollment with a local and/ or international student body.

Greater Control, Maximum Flexibility The Global Campus model was designed to meet university faculty and advisor needs by establishing greater control of curriculum and educational space abroad. We work with university faculty to design courses that fit your institutional goals, and continually assess our programs via direct feedback from the universities we serve. Our campus locations are selected for ease of access to the local community, both its historic and contemporary culture, and equipped with the technology students require today for academic success. The Global Campus model is characterized by: • Engagement with the local community through academic partnerships, shared programming, and service initiatives

• Curriculum designed around CEA’s “active learning” model to take learning beyond the classroom and into the city

• A focus on creative collaborations with U.S. colleges and universities

• Rigorous external oversight of faculty hiring and curriculum development

• U.S.-style academic calendar or specialized schedules

• Management by highly qualified and locally knowledgeable academic and administrative staff, trained in the best practices in education abroad

• Courses taught in English, as well as in the host language
