UCLA has announced it will offer a study abroad program to students studying abroad in the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia.
The program will begin in August, and will include one full-time student, and one part-time undergraduate student.
Students who choose to study overseas in 2018 will be able to study at a variety of institutions across the U.S. and Australia and will also be able learn to speak their native languages.
“In 2018, we will offer students the opportunity to study abroad in a range of institutions from the United Arab Emirates, the Dominican Republic, the Philippines, Malaysia, the U of T, University of Toronto, University College London, The University of California, and University of British Columbia,” said university vice president of undergraduate and postdoctoral studies Jennifer D’Arcy.
“These are all universities that are highly regarded internationally and have been recognized as top research destinations by international institutions and international students.”
The UCLA study program is one of three offered to UCLA undergraduates in 2018.
The other two programs are from Stanford and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The University’s study abroad programs are also being extended to international students, which will include a full-year study abroad option.
The university announced in December that it had approved $3.7 million in grant funding from the UBS Global Challenge and a $3 million contribution from the European Commission for the UCLA UCLA Study Abroad.
The program will open to students in May 2019 and will provide the students with the opportunity for a variety forgoing academic activities and research.
The UCLA study will also allow students to take part in internship and volunteer work.
D’Arce said the university was excited to expand the program and would provide additional support to ensure that UCLA students have access to a high quality of experience.
“We believe this program will allow us to offer the UCLA community an opportunity to have meaningful experiences and meet with peers from around the world,” she said.
“As an institution that values diversity and welcomes all people, we’re delighted to be helping these students have a more meaningful experience.”
D’Arccy said the University has a long history of supporting international students who study abroad.
UCLA has been working with its International Education Alliance to offer financial aid for students from developing countries, including the Philippines and Mexico.
