Catalogs and resources

Academic culture

The program requires a substantial time commitment: attending classes, participating in labs, as well as time spent outside of class studying and doing research or homework. Due to the intensive nature of the program it is not possible to make changes to timetables or reschedule assessments. It is important that you keep up with any new material. Faculty and associate tutors are on hand as a resource to help.


You will earn direct UC credit and grades for all coursework. This is a new program, and we do not know when grades will be available.
