Countdown to the Virtual Education Fair

University of California Berkeley International Study Program

The Berkeley International Study Program (BISP) provides the opportunity for visiting international students to take courses alongside UC Berkeley students in a short-term study abroad program for one or two semesters.

BISP provides sponsorship and the necessary letter of invitation to obtain a student visa for qualified students who enroll in courses on a fee-paying basis.

We also offer a robust program of activities and support to students who get the much sought-after “Berkeley Experience.”

BISP students come from a wide variety of academic backgrounds, particularly those in the Social Sciences, Arts, Humanities, Biological and Physical Sciences.
