Winter study at UCLA
12 Apr 2013
The United States Studies Centre is thrilled to once again offer University of Sydney Business School students an unprecedented opportunity to study at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) during this year's winter break.
21 students from the Business School participated in the inaugural program last year, including combined Commerce/Law student Thomas Farmakis. "The UCLA Study Abroad Program gave me the opportunity, not only to study at one of the best universities in the United States, but also to experience the Californian summer at its height. Using LA as our base, we'd spend the weekends jetting up and down the West Coast, making it back just in time for class and, of course, the vibrant campus social life."
UCLA is one of the world's most prestigious universities, placed 13th in the latest Times Higher Education rankings. Students from the faculty can apply to study and live on UCLA's Californian campus during the Australian June-July holiday period. In doing so, students will gain 12 credit points towards their University of Sydney degree, as well as benefit from the experience of US college life.
There will be an information session about the UCLA study abroad program between 12 and 1pm on April 24 in the New Law Lecture Theatre 101.
