What UCI study abroad program would you recommend?

Studying abroad has been on my mind for a long time. Since middle school, I’ve been wondering how people in other countries live. Now, I want to combine this interest with my studies and attend some classes. So, I’m looking for study abroad companies that provide such options. However, I’m not completely sure about the private ones. So, I’ve come upon the mentions of the University of California. Are there really any good UCI study abroad programs? Is this the right establishment to choose for my goals? If not, what other study abroad organizations can you advise me?

Well, I think that the UCI is a great place no matter what you are looking for. I’m glad to attend its classes and completely satisfied with the studies here. However, if you are looking for a good study abroad program, this place has a range of offers for you.

First of all, pay attention to the International Opportunities Program. This is a link between the university and any abroad studies you can think of. Of course, there are many programs offered by EAP, but this option has so many possibilities. You just have to make sure that your choice is based on the U.S. side. If you simply apply to a foreign university, IOP won’t work. In addition, those programs that are less than 10 weeks long are not eligible. This rule is applied in case of a quarter-length program. For a semester program, a minimum of 15 is needed. You should also remember that the first-year students are not eligible for IOP financial aid. In other cases, financial options are impressive. You can be sure you’ll be supported in one way or another. UCI study abroad aid involves various grants and loans. In addition, you can also pursue non-UCI scholarships and other grants.

To search the detailed information about all things concerning IOP, follow this link Here, you can see financial aid requirements, coasts, and frequently asked questions.

You can visit the webpage of UCI office of undergraduate studies This is also a special study abroad page that describes everything essential for the experience. EAP programs can send you in various countries depending on your preferences and field of studies you choose.

I think, this is better than any third-party study abroad organization. Here, you get full support and qualifies supervision. The mentioned page even lists certain things and rules that you need to follow while preparing for departure, while you abroad, and what you need to once you come back home. I’m sure that these tips will help you a lot when you decide to follow this path. For example, it mentions that you need to keep all work done abroad to get credit. You also have to save any reading lists, syllabi, etc. They will help you once you return to UCI.

If I were you. I would use UCI to study abroad. Who knows what unreliable study abroad company you will face on your own.

Yes, I agree that UCI website offers many great tips on the matter. I like the preparation part most of all. It lists all steps you have to take and all places you have to call or visit. It also provides all links to their webpages, so you can jump there and check all requirements yourself. They also differentiate IOP and EAP programs and mention the places where students have to pay attention to different aspects. There are also a few optional points meant to be a simple suggestion. However, I would still follow them all just to be sure.

UCI study abroad countries are the best thing about these programs. You can easily find a place to your liking anywhere in the world.

There are also some pretty awesome volunteering offers for students. In case you miss your study opportunity, you can always visit other countries for a short time between studies.
