At UC Berkeley Extension, we have an entire office dedicated to supporting our international students. We're there each step of the way to help—from the application process to your time in Berkeley and after your program ends. Our goal is that your Berkeley experience is positive, safe, fun and productive.

Part of each international program is the new-student orientation, where you go over program requirements, receive your class schedule and meet our staff. In addition, you receive important information about medical insurance, visa documents, traveling and more. We also provide you with a range of services, including:

  • On-site academic advising
  • Help to understand your health insurance plan
  • Student visa advising
  • Housing advice and support
  • Intercultural training
  • Program and academic orientation
  • Social activities
  • Résumé and interview workshops
  • Internship advising
  • Undergraduate and graduate admissions workshops
  • Review of college application essays
