Education Abroad Program (EAP)

The Navigator 2012-14

Through the Education Abroad Program (EAP), the University of California offers students the opportunity to study at more than 140 universities in 34 countries as part of their regular UC academic program. The university operates study centers in Argentina, Australia, Barbados, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Denmark, Egypt, England, France, Germany, Ghana, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, and Vietnam. The EAP serves students at all UC campuses and is administered by the University Office of EAP in Santa Barbara.

Students receiving financial aid can apply their award to a program abroad. In addition, special scholarships are available for students going to some countries. Funds for small scholarships have been provided by alumni of the program and the UC Office of the President.

Each EAP student receives full UC academic credit for courses completed and program options are available to sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students. Students interested in participating in EAP should contact the office early in their college career. EAP is structured to allow students to go abroad while still completing their degree program in four years.

Further information on EAP is available from the International Education Office (IEO), 107 Classroom Unit Building, (831) 459-2858, and the IEO web site, or by e-mail at
