Experience UC Davis without Leaving Home

UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education has been proud to host hundreds of students on the UC Davis campus for more than 15 years, providing an opportunity for individuals from over 17 different countries and 60 partner institutions to study at one of the top institutions in the United States while enjoying life in a safe, clean, idyllic college town.

Earn Academic Credit in Online Undergraduate Classes

This time of uncertainty offers a rare opportunity for international students to receive academic credit for taking UC Davis courses from their home country. As a result, we will be offering a new program for international students—A Taste of Davis. Participating students can enroll concurrently in UC Davis and their home university, allowing them to receive UC Davis academic credit at a lower financial cost and without taking a leave of absence from their current degree program. 

Along with their coursework, students will receive comprehensive support and participate in the virtual international student community. They will be able to engage in conversation hours with locals, receive course advising from dedicated academic advisors and participate in other community-building activities.
