 UC Education Abroad Program: 50th Anniversary

Celebrating 50 Years of Study Abroad

In the fall of 1962, 80 students from the University of California traveled to Bordeaux in the south of France to spend a year studying abroad. Since then, the UC Education Abroad Program has enabled more than 120,000 students to explore the world, expand their academic horizons, learn new languages, and gain global perspectives that have enriched their studies, their lives, and their careers. Join us in celebrating UCEAP's half-century, and looking forward to a future of outstanding study abroad opportunities for UC students.
