Application Deadline

Applications for summer 2018 will open on November 1. We will accept applications on a rolling basis (first-come/ first-served) until each program is full.

  • "Early bird" deadline: Wednesday, Feb 1. Apply by this date to have a better chance of getting a space in your first choice program and enter a raffle to win a travel voucher from STA Travel.
  • Regular deadline: Wednesday, March 1. For the programs that remain open after the early bird deadline, we will continue to accept applications until the regular deadline.

Get Ready - Understand Your Choices

1. First Steps session

Attend an in-person First Steps session or watch the First Steps video. (UCSD students only)

2. Program-specific information session

Attend one or more program-specific information sessions where you can learn about the program first-hand from the professor (UCSD students only). Read more and RSVP for your preferred session on our Facebook events page.

3. Appointment

If the information session schedule isn't convenient for you, or you have additional questions, make a one-on-one appointment with one of the Global Seminars coordinators by calling 858-534-1123. Students from outside UC San Diego may contact the coordinators by e-mail or set up a phone appointment.
