Study Abroad

UC Davis Abroad in Australia

Integrating Global Opportunities into the Academic Experience

UC Davis Study Abroad goes beyond traditional programs to provide students with opportunities as diverse as the countries in which they are located. These experiences adapt with the needs of our students, enhancing their academic, personal, and professional goals. Students gain valuable critical thinking and professional skills while gaining a greater appreciation for the world's cultures—all of which set them apart from other graduates.

Each year, more than 1,300 of our students take advantage of global learning opportunities across more than 30 countries. Offering the most faculty-led programs in the University of California system, UC Davis Study Abroad provides students and faculty alike with the beneficial interactions that result from combining coursework and international experiences.

In pursuit of Global Education for All, we are building on the already unique offerings—such as shorter and more affordable programs—to increase opportunities for internationally-infused internships and domestic programs that increase the cultural competency and professional skills of our students.

Diverse Programs around the World
