USIEA is working to become the lead resource in China for study abroad opportunities in higher education. When recruiting, we interview every student to help identify their goals and advise on the program that best fits their wishes, ranging from English language programs to full academic year programs. In China, the decision to study abroad is collective, and family approval is very important. We often work with parents as well as the student to select the appropriate program. 

Rather than working with a wide range of partner universities, USIEA only works with highly selective institutions in order to ensure each student’s education meets our standards of excellence. Our efforts are focused on providing students with a quality experience both pre-departure and during their time studying abroad. Currently, USIEA places students in the below institutions in English speaking countries for study abroad programs.

US universities:

Boston University
Columbia University
The George Washington University
University of California, Riverside
University of California, San Diego
University of Pennsylvania
University of Wisconsin, Madison

Canadian universities:

University of Victoria
University of Toronto

UK universities:

The London School of Economics and Political Science

Australian universities:

The University of Adelaide

Colleagues from Columbia University, University of California Riverside Extension, and University California San Diego Extension have been working closely with USIEA and USIEA’s Chinese partner universities to provide quality academic programs and excellent student service. Together we have placed thousands of students in English language programs, semester, summer and full academic year programs.  It is our great pleasure to be part of students’ lives and see them benefit by taking advantage of study abroad opportunities. 

Below are some comments from our longstanding partner Universities:

The University of California Riverside has been working with USIEA for 4 years to bring qualified visiting students from China to UCR for their study abroad. USIEA is a different kind of organization from others who help to recruit students from China to the US. They are diligent in selecting only the best qualified students for UCR. In all cases, they work with us to determine criteria and then each student is personally interviewed and tested before they are selected for UCR. I am as comfortable with USIEA selecting students as if I had hand-picked them myself. The students are also well oriented by USIEA before they come to UCR. As a result they have realistic expectations of their university experience in the US and therefore have a more successful experience in an American university. I admire the work of USIEA as they invest a substantial amount of funds to provide students with scholarships and other awards both before and after their stay. They truly care about the students from the time they are selected to when they return to China. USIEA is genuinely invested to ensure the best experience for their students to UCR. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Working with USIEA over the past three years has been a very positive experience. USIEA has taken care to learn about all of our various programs, and they have promoted them with integrity and excellent attention to detail. Enrolling students in our various English language programs and our visiting university-credit programs, USIEA does a very fine job in following our procedures and in advising and assisting its students in pre-departure matters, during their studies with us, and upon the students’ return back home.

USIEA has been representing the Visiting Students, Summer and American Language Programs for Columbia University School of Professional Studies for the past four years. During our relationship, USIEA has shown strong professionalism and thorough understanding of the Chinese educational market. They have been very helpful in suggesting courses and programs for their students and assisting students through the application process.

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.
