The Global Edge program has been suspended for 2021. This decision was not made lightly, but out of an abundance of caution due to potential COVID-19 restrictions.

How it Works
Begin your undergraduate studies at UC Berkeley in the summer with a virtual program orientation, one online course, and weekly online workshops.
After the Summer Session, you travel abroad to London and spend fall semester taking Berkeley courses.
After the program is over, you return to the United States for spring semester at Berkeley.
