The UC Davis Summer Abroad enrollment period opened yesterday. Applications will be accepted in the Education Abroad Center (EAC) office, located at 207 Third St., on a first-completed, first-reserved basis until April 6. The financial aid application deadline is in early May.
Students can choose from 43 programs in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Australia. New programs include “Sight, Sound and Space: Art, Music and Architecture in Austria” and “Castles in Northern Britain: From Hadrian’s Wall to Bolton, and Mary, Queen of Scots.”
EAC Marketing and Social Media Outreach Specialist Blake Cooper said there were about 30 students waiting to apply at the EAC offices at 7:30 a.m. yesterday — twice as many as last year.
Cooper attributed this increase to a change in the program fee, which was lowered by 25 percent.
