"Studying abroad is really not as difficult or expensive as it seems! UC provided me with a lot of help. It did take a lot of effort to plan the experience, but it was so, so worth it!

It’s also never too late to study abroad! I was already in my fourth (out of five) year in Chemical Engineering when I started planning my study abroad. It is considered more difficult to study abroad so late in your college career when you are supposed to be doing your core classes at UC. However, if I was able to make it work, anyone can! Don’t ever let anything stop you from exploring the world."
