Students will live in shared apartments with other international students, which may or may not be students from the UofM. Most apartments will have 2-3 students in one room, with 3-7 students per apartment. Apartments have a full shared kitchen, shared single-sex bathroom, internet access, washer (no dryer - typical in Europe), and central heating. Students are provided with a pillow and comforter to use -- students must provide their own sheets and towels. Apartments are typically a 10 to 30 minute commute via walking or public transportation from the Angle-American university. This is a typical commute in Europe, and students should be prepared to walk a lot more than they are used to in the USA. Students must check out of their housing on departure day.
*The $300 Refundable Program Deposit will be refunded to the student directly from the program organization, CEA, after the program ends provided nothing has been broken, damaged, etc. This applies not only to the housing, but also the CEA Office, Anglo-American University, and place of internship. Additional information provided in your CEA portal after application.
