Study Abroad Conference/Seminar

USIEA organizes conferences and seminars twice a year for members through its Chinese partner university network. The aim of these conferences is to provide a platform for partners to exchange views and share best practices on internationalization within higher education. Administrators and staff from international exchange and study abroad offices at various universities meet to discuss a wide range of topics including: different forms of collaboration with overseas institutions, promoting international programs on campus, how to assess and recognize courses from international universities; best practices for transfer of credits, etc.

USIEA also invites guest speakers with rich experience in international education to share their experiences at these conferences. Distinguished speakers are often invited from Chinese and US universities to deliver keynote speeches at conferences and seminars, and share their areas of expertise with other members of the study abroad community .

It was an amazing experience studying and living in sunny California. UCR is like a garden where the flowers of knowledge, freedom, respect, and happiness are in full blossom. Grab a cup of coffee, sit in the lovely sunshine, open my favorite book, and start my brand new day.

While studying at Columbia University, I was taken to the real science. This is not the "textbook science", but science at the frontier. With the inspiration from the professor, I started trying to solve the critical problem independently and the process has been full of excitement. No doubt the spirit of independence and the capacity of foresight would be indispensable for my future life. Columbia University is definitely an amazing place to improve you at the fundamental level.

The UC San Diego ELI(Intensive Business) program brought me not only the experience studying in a world class university, but also the friendship with all my Extension teachers, international classmates and some acquaintances who own super awesome working experience to share. Studying in this program, my English, especially business English skills, got improved, which will make my job hunting easier. I am just so glad to be in part of this program.

You live the same way as others and feel comfortable in home country.Only those who have studied in a foreign country understand the opportunities and the challenges you have to confront. Never give up and you will obtain not only knowledge but also the courage to face uncertain future.

I had a really wonderful time at CELOP and made a lot of friends that I still keep in touch with today. My instructors were great and taught me a lot both inside and outside classroom. I also had a conversation partner who was very helpful in improving my English. My experience at CELOP really helped me learn more about American culture and schools which has allowed me to succeed in my current position. I wish I could go back and study there again and again. You will never forget your experience here.

If you ask me what the most awesome activity is while I study at Metropolitan College Boston University in regards to academics, my answer is definitely networking events and professional conferences. Boston is home to many institutions of higher education like MIT, Harvard, and Boston College. Every year an increasing number of elite specialists in different industries from all over the world come to Boston for specific events. I joined Aite group for internship, and worked as a full-time employee. Even though the project I was assigned was a little bit tough for me, I learned a lot from my teammates. Thanks to this certificate program, I entered a small international arena to learn from different people from different countries.
