Study Abroad Opportunities

TMC strongly encourages and promotes opportunities to engage in learning experience outside of the UCSD campus.

Below are a few of the ways that students can take advantage of opportunities to enhance their college experience.

Education Abroad Program (EAP) & Opportunities Abroad Program (OAP)

Students may study abroad through the University of California's Education Abroad Program (EAP) and UC San Diego's Opportunity Abroad Program (OAP), earning academic credit toward their degree and gaining valuable international experience.

EAP participates in over 100 institutions in 35 countries, many for a full academic year and others for a shorter term. Language requirements vary by program.

Opportunities Abroad Program (OAP) provides worldwide options sponsored by institutions other than UC. Eligibility requirements are set by the sponsor and therefore vary widely. In addition to academic programs, OAP advisors can assist students in selecting a wide range of volunteer, internship and educational travel programs.

EAP and OAP students may use their financial aid while abroad. In addition, they may access special study abroad scholarships and grants.

Global Seminars

Global Seminars offer students the opportunity to study abroad for five-weeks during the summer.  The seminars are led by UCSD faculty, and incorporate a wide range of topics.  All Global Seminar courses are instructed in English.

Please visit the UC San Diego Global Seminars website for more information.
