Bio Sci Statistics in Cork

UC Davis Summer Abroad is an academic program that aims to enhance students’ education by incorporating both traditional lectures with experiential learning outside of the classroom setting. Students will earn 8 quarter units in four weeks; therefore, students should expect a rigorous academic course work that is enriched by both the program’s location(s) and activities. Auditing is not an option. 

Students on Summer Abroad programs earn regular UC Davis course credit which may be used to fulfill degree, major, minor, General Education (GE) requirements. UC Davis students can use Summer Abroad courses to fulfill their academic requirements as listed in the General Catalog. Students from other campuses should consult with the academic advisors from their home campuses to determine whether courses taken on our programs may be used to fulfill their specific academic requirements. 

See Academics to learn more about applying Summer Abroad coursework toward your major/minor/General Education requirements. 

Semester students who will apply for Summer Financial Aid should contact Summer Abroad to inquire about enrolling in an additional unit.
