Before you submit your application, please make sure you are able to commit to the following dates. The Pre-departure sessions are compulsory:

Please note:

Students are required to attend the full summer sessions at UCLA from 19 June to 29 July 2016. Due to the intensive nature of study, students are required to attend all timetabled classes.

For University of Western Australia students, the start of the program overlaps with the last week of exams.  You will be required to travel to the US immediately following your last exam.  You will also be responsible for contacting your UCLA lecturers prior to the program, to advise of your late travel and to mutually arrange how to go about catching up on your missed study.
