UC Davis Quarter Abroad is one of four study abroad programs offered through UC Davis Study Abroad. Quarter Abroad is unique to the UC Davis campus and offers students a chance to earn UC Davis units while participating in quarter-length programs designed by UC Davis faculty and taught in an international setting. Programs run 10-16 weeks and allow students to earn 12-27 quarter units straight out of the UC Davis Course Catalog (no transferring of credits required).
