Academics . Curriculum . International + Domestic Study . Study Abroad 

Study Abroad

Studying in another country enables you to explore other cultures to enhance your social, academic, and professional interests, or just have a grand adventure!  

Cleveland Institute of Art students are encouraged to do a summer or semester experience after sophomore year. Faculty help students choose courses so the work completed will apply toward the CIA degree. In addition, a study abroad advisor provides information sessions on preparation for study abroad, specific overseas programs, financial planning, and security and safety. Individual advising allows students to review a number of program options and choose the one that will meet their goals.

International and North American Mobility Programs

CIA has enrollment agreements with six international programs:

  • Strate College of Design, Paris
  • Anhalt University of Applied Science and Technology, Dessau,Germany
  • Burren College of Art, Ballyvaughn, Ireland
  • Bezalel College of Arts and Design, Tel Aviv, Israel
  • Studio Art Centers International, Florence, Italy
  • University of the Arts, Osaka Japan

CIA students may enroll in other programs overseas that are determined to meet the academic quality standards of the college. These are approved on a case-by-case basis. Some international programs allow students to use federal or CIA financial aid while others do not. CIA's study abroad advisor helps students in this area.

Within North America, CIA students may avail of "mobility" opportunities to attend one of our 40+ fellow members of the Association of Independent College of Art and Design (aicad.org/about).

Countries from which CIA has enrolled students in recent years include: Canada, China, France, Guatemala, Germany, India, Japan, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Taiwan, Trinidad and Tobago, United Kingdom, and Vietnam.  CIA reviews and considers applications from international students who have attended educational institutions that are recognized and accredited by the equivalent of the ministry of education, as appropriate to that country.
