Academic Culture

Most classes are small by UC standards, so you’ll have more direct interaction with the teacher and students. You will be expected to fully participate in the learning process, both individually and collaboratively as a group. 

In addition to classroom teaching, learning will also take place on UCL's Virtual Learning Environment Moodle, where you will have access to teaching materials, reading lists, and discussion forums. 



You will earn direct UC credit and grades for all coursework. Grades are typically available in mid-September.

Tip: If you intend to put yourself on your campus degree list for graduation while on UCEAP, consult your campus advisors before departure about possible delays in the degree verification process.
