It introduces you to the people and places where ideas are born. Journeying to a new country, you'll encounter cultures, traditions, languages, and stories that surprise, delight, and expand your intellect. As you shift your view of the world, you'll test the boundaries of who you are and what you're capable of achieving.

As an aspiring environmental engineer and a student of color, I want to revamp current civil systems for rural and developing communities through renewable energy, green infrastructure, sustainable materials, and better water, electric, and broadband networks. I want to redefine engineering to be not only about projects but more about the people they serve.

The opportunity to study abroad made me a more confident person. I'm no longer afraid to explore or live in new places because I know I can adapt and live like a local. My world has opened up after three valuable months abroad, and this program reaffirmed my decision to major in International Studies. It helped me connect with new cultures and convinced me that I want to pursue an international career path.

Invest in your future

You can afford to study abroad

Financial aid, grants, and scholarships can be used for all of your costs. Some programs even cost less than staying at UC. Studying abroad is the investment in your future that you can't afford to miss.
