Choosing A Program

With so many program options, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. As you search for the best fit program for you, think about your personal and academic goals in studying abroad and don’t lose track of them. Here are some questions to ask yourself: 

  • What are you trying to achieve academically while you are abroad?
  • Do you aspire to take courses toward your UC Davis major, general education requirements, for personal enrichment, or all of the above?
  • Do you speak any other languages you want to perfect? Or are you interested in learning a language from scratch?
  • For how long would you like to study abroad and what term? Summer, Quarter, Semester, or Year?
  • Are you comfortable taking classes immersed in a foreign university, or would you prefer to stick with a group of UC students?
  • Would you like the UCEAP program you select to have an internship component?
