Transfer Students Study Abroad


“As a transfer student, I can wholeheartedly say that participating in EAP was one of the best academic and professional decisions I could have made. One month after my return from England—where I studied English literature and communications at the University of Leeds—I was able to find work as a journalist for a daily newspaper. My employer was impressed with my versatility and willingness to take on the challenges associated with living and studying in a foreign country.”

Whatever your class level, GPA, age or marital status, there is a study abroad program for you.

As a UCI EAP student you can:
