"The best thing about the program was the flexibility and the organisation. I was able to pick the right program for me. CIEE helped with all the hard stuff like visas and social security. It was a great experience not to be missed. I had an awesome time and met some great people. It looks great on the resume to have overseas work experience. " Elspeth Hurley, NSW
