- Descriptif de l'université
Study Abroad at UCLA is designed for students who want to spend a quarter or more at a top-ranked American university, earn credit that they can transfer to their home university, and experience life in Southern California. Our program gives you the option of enrolling in daytime UCLA undergraduate courses with UCLA students, in evening UCLA Extension courses with students and working professionals, or a combination of UCLA and UCLA Extension courses. In addition to enjoying the park-like UCLA campus and our year-round sunny climate, you’ll be amazed at how much Los Angeles has to offer: L.A. is a hub for international business; it’s the home of the film and entertainment industry; it’s famous for museums, theaters, and concert venues, and, with its incredible beaches, mountains, and deserts, it’s a destination for sports and leisure activities.
Founded in 1919, the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) is one of the most prestigious and top-ranked universities in the U.S. With a student population of more than 40,000, UCLA leads the UC system in enrollment rankings. The distinguished faculty includes Nobel Prize winners, Guggenheim Fellows, and members of the National Academy of Sciences. UCLA is also known for its libraries, prize-winning athletic teams, performing arts, and cultural offerings.
UCLA Extension Certificate Programs provide international students and working professionals with the knowledge and skills they need in their careers and personal lives.
Over 50 programs—in specialized fields such as filmmaking, marketing, graphic design, project management, journalism, and more—have been approved for F-1 visa students.
Academic Reputation: Upon completion of a UCLA Extension program, participants receive a certificate from one of the top universities in the United States. Our programs meet standards established by the University of California Academic Senate and are subject to the approval of UCLA Faculty and industry advisory groups.
Real-world Knowledge and Experience: The majority of Extension instructors are experienced professionals who are currently working in their fields of specialization. The courses they teach are usually directly related to what they do each day in their jobs.
Practical Application: Since many UCLA Extension participants are also working professionals, most courses place a strong emphasis on practical application. Networking with instructors and classmates with similar professional interests can help with internships and business opportunities.
Cross-Cultural Environment: Studying side-by-side with Americans ensures a high level of instruction and offers opportunities to increase cultural understanding and English-language proficiency.
Length of study and hours:
Programs typically consist of 9 to 12 courses over a period of nine months to one year.
Individual courses meet for about 12 weeks, usually in the evening, from 6:30 to 9:00pm or 7:00 to 10:00pm. For each 3-hour meeting, expect to spend 6-9 hours studying outside of class.
Most courses carry 4 units of credit and meet 3 hours per week. International students must enroll in at least 12 units per 12-week quarter to be considered full-time students and qualify for an F-1 visa.

Cours et Crédits
UCLA Extension offers a wide variety of undergraduate and post-baccalaureate courses. Since only your home university can make decisions regarding transfer credit, you will need permission from your university to enroll in some UCLA Extension courses. In many cases, you can enroll in and pay for UCLA Extension courses before you arrive in Los Angeles. Although offering no degree programs, UCLA Extension is noted for its certificate programs, more than 50 of which meet international student visa requirements. Thus, a large number of Americans and international students take courses leading to certificates in specific fields such as Accounting, Marketing, Real Estate, Project Management, Systems Analysis, Interior Design, Cinematography, Journalism, and more; visit uclaextension.edu/intc for a complete list of programs. UCLA Extension courses and instructors are approved by UCLA departments. The majority of UCLA Extension instructors are working professionals who are experts in their fields. The courses they teach are directly related to what they do in their jobs. Those who enroll in UCLA Extension courses are usually working professionals and international students who already have one or more university degrees. UCLA Extension courses focus on practical application and provide professionals and students with the knowledge and skills they need for their careers.
