What is Independent Study Abroad?
Independent Study Abroad is any study abroad program outside the UC system. With UC Davis Quarter Abroad, Summer Abroad, Virtual Summer Internships, Summer Abroad Internships, Seminars Abroad, USA Study Programs, and UCEAP opportunities exist for most students to study abroad in nearly every country of the world and receive UC credit. When you have researched the programs offered within the University of California system and you still cannot fit the right program to meet your goals, you can always look for programs outside the UC system.
In order to participate on an independent program during the academic year, you will need to apply for Independent Leave. You must ensure also that your program is associated with an accredited institution.
