Study Abroad

UC Berkeley’s Study Abroad program is your passport to study around the globe.

Since 1962, UC Berkeley students have studied abroad, internationalizing the Cal campus and creating a community of globally informed students and alumni. Today, more than 1,200 Cal students study abroad annually while UC Berkeley hosts over 300 exchange students from around the world, internationalizing the University and preparing new generations of global citizens and leaders. 

Win a scholarship to study Spanish with a Berkeley professor in Spain. Learn about finance and trade during a summer internship in Singapore. Conduct lab research at the University of Tokyo. No matter what your study abroad experience, you'll be more prepared for the challenges of living and working in a globalized society and benefit socially and academically.

Studying abroad is such a wonderful experience, and one that contributed to my academic experience.

– Student Jennifer D.
