    • Greetings from California! The University of California, Davis (UC Davis) is open and excited to welcome students in person for classes. To ensure we’re ready to welcome students on campus, we have made safety our number one priority. We are following prevention best practices in alignment with state, federal and local public health guidelines, including vaccine mandates, symptom screening, asymptomatic testing, masks on campus, social distancing and limited class sizes. We also offer several remote learning options for students unable to travel for in-person learning.

      From incredible weather to breath-taking landscapes and unparalleled possibilities, California has long been a desirable destination for international students. In addition, UC Davis is conveniently situated at the heart of California.

      UC Davis International Programs offer cutting edge-technology, engaging students and dedicated instructors both online and on campus. At UC Davis, our students have access to a state-of-the-art facility where classes take place, all while on the campus of a progressive, top-ranked 21st-century research university where excellence and innovation are emphasized. I am very pleased to share with you the unique opportunities we offer through our full program offerings, from various 4-week short-term content-based programs to academic and linguistic pathway preparation programs. Whether online or in person, our programs connect students and scholars throughout the world to the exceptional academic opportunities of UC Davis.

      International students discover a thriving global community at UC Davis where we welcome students from more than 100 countries each year—all of whom share an adventurous spirit of learning and the desire to pursue higher education and cultural immersion within a global community.

      Overall I Loved California
      U.C. Davis is located in such a wonderful town and it is a very good school to study at. However, the ESL classes were held in the corner of the school and the classrooms weren't as nice as I would have liked. But, I really liked the teachers and classes there and the living experence in California was wonderful. There is no better place to live in the U.S. than California!!

      設備
      個人經驗:
      設備其實已經壞了又壞, 卻無更換新的。
      ex. 列表機。
      已經很舊了, 雖然可以繼續用,但是上課需要印的時候又壞,很困擾。希望以後更新。

      Extension的宣傳雜誌直接延用之前的資訊,希望以後更新...
      ex. 未更新的資訊,wise home stay的金額。

      課程受用
      當初選擇學校考量所在位置及學校的品質,UC Davis在大學的排名不錯,老師教學認真,語言學習環境佳,校內資源豐富,校外活動多,都是不錯的安排。
      缺點:東方人偏多,主要是日本與韓國學生。寄宿家庭的環境大都很優良,但有少部份對學生較為冷漠。

      1. 하루에 진행하는 총 4교시동안 실제 미국에 거주할 때 도움이 되는 실용적인 주제와 내용들로 진행되었음. 프로그램 주제가 잘 짜여져 있음. 각 교시 선생님분들도 열정적이고 비영어권 학생들과 소통하며 최대한 학업에 도움을 주기 위해 노력하셨음. 선생님분들 정말 정말 좋은 분들이셨음.

      2. 4주과정부터 10주과정까지 수업의 주제에 따라 반이 다른데, 본인이 들었던 4주과정 Communication and Culture을 주제로 했던 반의 영어 난이도는 본인에게는 쉬운편이었음. 대부분이 아시아권 학생들로 구성되어 있었음. 다른 주제 프로그램 반 같은 경우에는 서양권 학생들이 있어서, 좀 더 난이도를 높여서 언어에 집중하고 싶으면 다른반을 추천. 이 반은 주제 자체도 부담가지며 시험을 위해 준비하는 반이 아니라서 정말 미국에 대한 문화 이해와 언어를 위주로 진행되었음.

      3.학교 재학생들인 컨버세이션 파트너들이 주마다와서 영어로 대화할 기회를 만들어 주심.

      4.학교는 조용하고 데이비스와 근교 새크라멘토 등의 도시들이 관광도시는 아니여서 조용히 공부하기 좋음. 여행하기 좋은 엘에이 샌프란 이런 도시들은 비행기타고 이동해야함.

      본인은 이 지역에 현지 친구들이 있어서 온거라, 처음에는 수업에 대해 많이 알아보지 못하고 이 수업을 접하게 되었음. 하지만 수업을 가볍고 재밌게 즐길 수 있었음. 개인적으로 만족합니다.

      有意義でした
      始め どんなだか 全く想像できていませんでした。
      しかし、始まってからの4週間はあっという間に過ぎていきました。
      週末は色々なところに行き友人と楽しい時間を過ごすことが出来ました。寮に滞在しましたが、いくつかの不便な点はあるものの面白い経験でした。

      空は常に雲一つなく真っ青なので気持ちよい。
      Davisという街自体は完全なる学園都市であり治安はかなり良いと思える。故に女性の方には他都市に比べて安心できるだろう。語学留学プログラムでは夏は日本人の割合が高くなり全体の3~4割ほどである。中東や南米からの生徒も多い。クラスは実力順に分けられ一クラス約15人ほど。

      アットホームなデイビス
      授業の質の高さに驚いた。一つのクラスだけでなく全体でいい環境にしようという意識がある。教師陣においてはハズレがなく、どのクラスも充実していた。
      セメスターによっては日本人留学生が多い時期があるかと思うが、レベルの高いクラスに入ればキャンパスの授業も受けれる。アメリカが初めての留学生から進学希望の留学生まで幅広く楽しめるアットホームな環境である。

      教材とスケジュール
      講師陣は経験豊富だが、多くの国からの学生が来ているので、本邦とは教え方などは異なっている。教材は、色々な種類があるので、良く考えて相談する必要がある。スケジュールは、講師の判断などで変更されることがあるので、良くサポートスタッフと相談して、確認しておけば、気苦労が減ることになると思われる。雰囲気はとても良いので、気軽に聞いてみれば、楽しくなるだろう。

      留学生活
      ”アメリカでどんな生活が待っているのか”そんな気持ちで日本をたちました。UC,DavisのIEPPの建物は、小さく、キャンパスからは少し離れていますが、周りには自然がたくさんありすてきなところです。先生方は個性的で、楽しい授業、ためになる授業をしてくれる方が多いです。
