Enrollment for Summer Abroad 2014 has now closed. If you are a UC Davis student looking for faculty led programs that are currently accepting enrollments, please check out our new Seminars Abroad programs.

UC Davis Summer Abroad programs offer students short, intensive academic courses that are complemented with a wealth of excursions and cultural activities. All of our programs are built around UC Davis courses and are led by UC Davis faculty. Many provide opportunities for students to visit non-English speaking countries while doing their coursework in English. Class sizes are small — 18-30 students — allowing for an intimate learning experience. UC Davis Summer Abroad is open to all University of California students and students from other US institutions.
