    Two Great Campuses, One Unforgettable Summer

    The UCSB and UCLA 6 Week Combo is the best of both worlds. Start your summer at UC Santa Barbara in Goleta, California. After 3 awesome weeks by the beach, travel with your friends up to the spectacular city of Los Angeles. Here you will stay for 3 weeks at UCLA. You’re going to love the California lifestyle.

    This program will not be offered in summer 2021 to limit students traveling between campuses. We look forward to offering this program in summer 2022!
