Congratulations! Your amazing study abroad adventure is right around the corner.
A few things to note before you prepare for your trip:
Follow us on Instagram and tag us in your study abroad photos. We’d love to share your pictures from abroad! Make sure to tell us where you’re studying and through which program provider (UCEAP, Berkeley Summer Abroad, Berkeley Global Internships, independent, or affiliate programs).
1. Systemwide UCEAP Pre-Departure Checklist
Visit the UCEAP Participants Page to view the system-wide UCEAP Pre-Departure Checklist for your program, including travel requirements, money matters, insurance, calendars, policies, and petitions.
2. Berkeley Campus Pre-Departure Checklist
In addition to the systemwide UCEAP requirements, UC Berkeley students must complete a campus-specific checklist which can be found in your Berkeley Study Abroad applicant status portal. Log in to your application using your CalNet ID, and scroll to the bottom of the page.
Our students’ health and safety are top priorities for Berkeley Study Abroad.
We ask that while you’re studying abroad to be aware of current events, your surroundings, and use caution when necessary.
For more information on emergency protocols, please contact your program adviser.
If you will be on campus next semester, you can volunteer as a Study Abroad Ambassador and help promote study abroad at Berkeley through social media and outreach events.
If you are a current Berkeley student with work-study eligibility, you can apply to be a Peer Adviser and work for Berkeley Study Abroad during the next academic year.
