Studying at UC San Diego was definitely my best decision ever! It went beyond my expectations. I extended my knowledge about Marketing, PR and Advertising, and I met many incredible international students, with all different backgrounds and cultures. My internship at the San Diego Union-Tribune was great. I learned about community relations, working in a large company, and I got the opportunity to work at the Buick Invitational!

ADVISORY ABOUT VARIABLE ENROLLMENTS
Conversation Leaders are an integral part of both the Conversation and Conversation Plus programs. Conversation Leaders are American UC San Diego students and members of the community who actively participate in class with our students several hours per week.
Enrollment numbers in our Conversation and Conversation Plus programs vary greatly from month to month. If our placement tests indicate that a student’s English proficiency level does not permit placement in a 4-week program class, we may place the student in 4 weeks of study in our 10-week Communication and Culture program or we may provide a combination of classes and individual tutoring to ensure a fulltime program of 20 hours per week for 4 weeks. Alternatively, we may decide to place all 4-week program students in level-appropriate classes in our 10-week Communication and Culture program in order to provide a program of 20 hours per week for 4 weeks. When this happens the student’s 4-week program will have the features described for our 10-week Communication and Culture program (see page 6), not the features described on these pages for our 4-week programs. The tuition and fees for the student’s 4-week program enrollment will remain the same.
Conversation Leaders provide students in these programs with the chance to meet and have meaningful interaction with native speakers of English. ELI’s expert conversation instructors design and supervise the lessons and conversation activities so that the students’ time with the conversation leaders will have maximum benefit.

The California Community Colleges has 109 campuses, over 2.8 million students, and provides the first two years of college education only.

UC San Diego Extension provides advice and pathways to help students achieve work experience and enroll in a degree program at a university or professional school in the United States. WORK EXPERIENCE: OPTIONAL PRACTICAL TRAINING (OPT) After one academic year (three consecutive quarters) of full-time study in a non-language program in the United States, students can apply for permission to work up to 12 months in their field of study as a practical application of what they have learned. This is called Optional Practical Training (OPT). The International Student Services (ISS) staff will assist students with their application for OPT. The ISS staff has a very high success rate with OPT applications. They cannot, however, guarantee the approval of the application by the U.S. government. Please note that the International Student Services staff does not assist with job search or job placement services.
APPLYING FOR UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSION TO UC SAN DIEGO It is difficult to enter UC San Diego as a foreign student in the first year. It is much easier to transfer from a California community college (after two years of study) into the third year at UC San Diego. In recent years over 90% of transfer students come from California community colleges. This is the best pathway to undergraduate UC San Diego admission for most international students.

UNIVERSITY AND PROFESSIONAL STUDIES (UPS) The UPS program is an opportunity for international students with strong academic preparation who would like to take a full-time schedule of credit-bearing courses at UC San Diego or UC San Diego Extension while studying alongside American university students. Universities in many countries count these credits towards their own bachelor’s or master’s degree programs. Transferability is at the discretion of the home university and must be verified in advance by the student.
LINE HOLME MEHLUM, NORWAY The cool thing about the UPS program is that you can pick and choose classes from both UC San Diego Extension and UC San Diego main campus classes. I loved how I had full freedom to pick the classes that I wanted to fill up my 12 units.
In the fall, winter, and spring quarters, UPS students take a full-time program (12-units) consisting of UC San Diego and/ or UC San Diego Extension courses in any combination. The following are some of the departments and courses that UPS students have enrolled in: • Literature
• Electrical Engineering

• Organic Chemistry
• Mechanical Engineering
• General Chemistry
• Computer Science

It is especially difficult to get enrollment approvals for first-choice classes in our prestigious Economics department.

TEACHING ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE (TEFL) PROFICIENCY CERTIFICATE
I was an EFL teacher for six years before I came to UC San Diego Extension to take the TEFL Certificate program, and I was not as new to the subjects being taught in class as most of my classmates.
