Study abroad

So it makes sense to get out there and see the world we’re changing. Berkeley Engineering works in concert with the UC Education Abroad Program (EAP) as well as non-UC sponsored programs to enrich your engineering education with an experience in a foreign country.

Study abroad programs are offered for one semester, a full academic year or a summer session. Every program takes careful planning and thorough communication with your Engineering Student Services adviser and the financial aid office. You can complete such a program without delaying graduation; however, if needed, students who participate will be granted an additional semester to finish their degree requirements.

If you think that studying abroad is an experience you’d like to explore, read our study abroad FAQs and visit the Berkeley Study Abroad website. You’ll also need to fill out and submit an EAP college requirements status form and EAP preliminary academic planning form.

Wednesday, October 15, 67:30 p.m., Sibley Auditorium, Bechtel Engineering Center. Hear from a panel of current engineering students about their experiences overseas, the programs they participated in and the steps they took to make study abroad fit into their schedule. Representatives from the Education Abroad Program (EAP) and ESS will be there to answer questions about transferring credits, financial aid and any other questions you may have. Food will be provided. RSVP so we’ll have enough food!
