This webpage will be the most updated, authoritative resource about how COVID-19 relates to our upcoming programs.
Like many of you, we have been monitoring the COVID-19 global situation daily. For 10 years, we have been here for our students, and we will continue to be here next year and beyond.
Our 2021 summer programs are open for applications and include our COVID-19 100% Tuition Refund Policy. We are cautiously optimistic that student travel and study abroad will be possible in 2021, but if a program is canceled by C.E.L.A. Belize due to COVID-19, we will refund 100% of any program tuition you have paid (including the deposit). This is our way to help students plan confidently to pursue their dreams.
With every new enrollment, we are currently donating $100 now to our program partners. These donations help support animal welfare and conservation during this time when many of our partners are closed to visitors and volunteers. We know we can get through this together.
We’re also proud to be offering outstanding online courses, internships, and research fellowships from Belize and around the world with our partner Loop Abroad. We are streaming live video from the jungles of Belize, flying drones over the African savanna, and running a mobile clinic for stray cats and dogs in Thailand. As a part of every online experience, our expert instructors and program partners continue to share their passion for veterinary medicine and conservation. Courses include 3 college credits.
We have steeply discounted these online experiences in Summer 2020, and we are extending those discounts through Fall 2020, including for Loop Abroad’s Online Veterinary Semester Abroad. This is our way of helping our students continue to gain valuable experiences no matter where they are in the world. That’s what we’ve always done with our study abroad programs and that’s what we’re continuing to do with our online programs.
This pandemic has highlighted how connected our world is and how health is both a public and global issue. We are so proud to be in the business of educating students in health sciences. We are so proud of our past, present, and future students for their commitment to being a force for change in the face of global challenges.
