You will live in a furnished, double occupancy dorm or shared-bedroom apartments and have access to kitchen facilities, laundry and internet and convenient access to public transportation.
You should be open to all types of accommodation as housing placements are based on a number of factors such as availability, program length, cost, number of participants and proximity to the internship site. Specific details about accommodations and local transportation to and from the internship site will be provided approximately 3 weeks prior to departure.
UC Davis reserves the right to change the accommodation location. Should this be necessary, we will arrange alternative lodging. Please note that elevators, air conditioners and other modern conveniences may not be available in all locations.
A welcome and farewell dinner is included in the program cost. All other meals are not included in the program cost and are the responsibility of the participant. You will be able to shop locally for groceries to prepare meals in your housing, as well as take time to enjoy the cafes and restaurants.
Specific activities vary based on the local events at the time of the program. There are typically also cross-cultural or professional development activities throughout the program and students will be provided with recommendations of supplemental activities as well.
“A crossroads of international trade for centuries, Singapore is the dynamic gateway to Asia and one of the world's most globalized cities. This island city-state hosts the Asian headquarters for many multinational corporations across a range of industry sectors. The modern skylines and excellent public transportation system are perks to the city life in Singapore.” Learn more about Singapore.
Participation in this UC Davis Study Abroad program requires travel to and extended living in a foreign location(s) abroad. UC Davis Study Abroad endeavors to reduce and mitigate risk wherever possible. However, the environments and risks associated with living in these locations are substantially different than those found during a regular course of study at UC Davis. All participants must download and review the following information prior to departure. Any questions should be directed to the Program Coordinator.
