UCSC International Curriculum
The courses within the UCSC International Curriculum will be mainly offered on a semester basis (both Spring and Fall); however, as changes may occur, applicants will be advised on the effective and definitive list of courses available two months before the semester starts.
The courses bear the equivalent of 3 U.S. Credits, however within the European Exchange framework these same courses have the value of 4 ECTS. The conversion from US or ECTS credits to your credit system is defined by your home institution. Please refer to your Study Abroad Advisor for detailed information.
