Global Intern Certificate Program

The intern program provides our dedicated returned students with the opportunity to continue their involvement with UCSB EAP.  You will be able to share your study abroad expertise with advisors, students and anyone interested in studying abroad.  From this experience, you will serve as a vital contact for future UCEAP students and will be able to incorporate this into your résumé!

Note: Some details of the program will be changed for the 2017-18 year.  Program requirements for previous years are listed below for your reference only.  In early September, UCSB EAP returnees will receive an email with the new program updates and instruction on how to sign-up for the program.
