Founded in 1919, UCLA is one of the top-ranked research universities in the U.S. and in the world. With its College of Letters and Sciences and 11 professional schools, UCLA serves nearly 40,000 students, making it the largest of the 10 campus University of California (UC) system. The UCLA Library system ranks among the top 10 research libraries in the U.S. UCLA professors have received numerous awards, including the National Medal of Science, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Nobel Prize, the Pulitzer Prize, and Guggenheim Fellowships.

In terms of student admissions, UCLA is one of the most competitive universities in the UC system. UCLA students are well prepared academically and represent considerable diversity; although the majority of UCLA students are from California, students come from all 50 states in the U.S. and from 63 foreign countries. For many years, UCLA has been a popular destination for international students.

UCLA operates on the quarter system with academic sessions that are 12 weeks in length. Before deciding to apply for Study Abroad at UCLA, please take a close look at the fields of study and courses that are offered to ensure that the program will meet your personal educational objectives.

Although you will not be a fully matriculated UCLA student and will not be accepted into a degree program; you will be able to enroll in UCLA courses for transferable credit and study side-by-side with UCLA students
When they arrive at UCLA to begin their program, Study Abroad students enroll in courses on a space-available basis and only with the instructor’s approval. Your program advisors will guide you through the enrollment process, and they will suggest courses where the chances for enrollment are good. The advisors will also give you a letter of introduction explaining that you are an international student enrolled in UCLA Study Abroad, and will also explain that you have met the rigorous requirements of the program.


*You also have the opportunity to enroll in UCLA Extension courses. Please note that most UCLA Extension courses are offered in the evening between the hours of 6:30 and 10pm.
Student housing accommodations and meals are not included in the program price. UCLA campus housing is available only in summer. Thus, you will need to make arrangements for off-campus housing during fall, winter, and spring quarters. Housing arrangements can be made in advance; however, you may wish to arrive in Los Angeles a week or two in advance of your program start date if you want to find an apartment to share or rent with other students. It would be best to consult your university or study abroad consultant for more information on housing.

You also may contact the UCLA Community Housing Office for off-campus listings. You will need to register online and pay a registration fee of approximately $25.

Since housing near UCLA tends to be rather expensive, you may wish to arrive in Los Angeles one or two weeks early in order to find housing which is less expensive. In such cases, the hotel list, avaivlable through GEMS, may be helpful. There are numerous local newspapers, e.g., the UCLA newspaper, The Daily Bruin , which lists housing accommodations in its “Classified Advertisement” section.

Although UCLA and UCLA Extension can provide lists of off-campus housing accommodations, it does not manage, endorse, or make specific recommendations regarding housing accommodations. All housing contracts and arrangements are made between you and the housing provider, and they are not the responsibility of UCLA Extension.
