Site Familiarization


CGE offers site familiarization trips to help institutions of higher education better understand our programming on the ground.  Site familiarization trips may vary in focus, but each will cover topics related to semester, summer, and short-term programs with an emphasis on semester-long programs.  Familiarization trips will generally occur while a semester program is in session.  Participants will accompany students on excursions, meet with several program guest speakers, and observe a class.  We attempt to arrange time with homestay families as well.  Presentations during the site familiarization trip cover health/safety, risk management, faculty/staff credentials, pedagogy, evaluation/grading, program calendar, and student life.

CGE is not currently offering any site familiarization trips.  However, if you are interested in an individual visit to any of our sites to learn more about what we do, please contact Jessica Haas at  We will work with you as best we can to ensure you have access to our study centers, facilities, faculty, staff, and students.  CGE may be able to offer accommodations (on an as-available basis) at a low cost.
