About the Global Edge London Program
Global Edge is a first year pathway option for newly admitted students in the College of Letters & Science, College of Natural Resources, and HAAS Global Management Program. Students in the Global Edge London program spend their summer at Berkeley then their first fall semester abroad in London enrolled in UC Berkeley courses at the UC London Center.
All courses taken during the summer term at Berkeley and during the fall semester abroad are offered for UC Berkeley credit and appear on the student’s transcript as Berkeley courses with letter grades. By the end of the semester, students will have completed general and area breadth requirements. Participation in Global Edge fulfills the International Studies breadth requirement.
About the Pre-College Scholars Summer Program
The Pre-College Scholars Summer program offers rising high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to enroll in UC Berkeley college courses during Berkeley Summer Sessions. The program is open to domestic and international high school students who are able to select either the Residential or Commuter track, depending on their eligibility and housing needs.
