EAP - UC’s Education Abroad Program

  • We’ll tell you all about it today!

    IOP - UCI’s International Opportunities Program

  • Study, Work, Intern, Volunteer, Research, and Teach

  • Good alternative if EAP doesn’t work for you

  • Still earn credit and receive financial aid


Why study abroad l.jpg

Why Study Abroad?

  • Increased personal growth, language proficiency, cultural awareness

  • Academic challenge and reward

  • Graduate school, career, & resume enhancement: Less than 2% of American college students actually study abroad, which makes YOU stand out!

  • Travel opportunities

  • Meet new people, make new friends

  • Don’t let the experience of a lifetime pass you by!


Why study on eap l.jpg

Why Study on EAP?

  • The Regents of the University of California have recognized the need to incorporate an international experience into your UC degree.

  • EAP is part of UC. You are not taking time off, but maintain your UCI status while abroad.

  • UCI wants you to go abroad!


Will i get credit l.jpg

Will I get credit?

Yes!

  • All course work abroad on EAP earns UC credit, not transfer credit.

  • Courses and grades are listed on your UCI transcript.

  • Courses taken on EAP can fulfill major, minor, and/or breadth requirements. Make “normal” progress towards your degree with careful planning.


Can i afford it l.jpg

Can I afford it?

If you can afford UC, you can afford EAP!

  • Students pay the SAME UC fees!

  • In many cases the cost is comparable to studying at UCI.

  • UCI financial aid goes with you abroad!

  • Your financial aid is recalculated based on the budget for your program (includes airfare, pre-departure expenses, etc.)

  • Special EAP scholarships help offset any higher cost.


Is there support abroad l.jpg

Is there support abroad?

Definitely!

  • A Study Center Director (or designated UC liaison officer) administers the program and is responsible for the academic and personal well-being of EAP students.
