AND THE UC SAN DIEGO ENGLISH LANGUAGE INSTITUTE?

YOUSEF ALSHAMMARI
SAUDI ARABIA

Before I came to the UC San Diego English Language Institute, I was very weak
in writing and grammar. However, I can confidently say that my writing has
improved dramatically and I received a high score on the TOEFL. My teachers
were very creative and knowledgeable. It may sound strange, but I always looked
forward to my grammar class because of the fun activities we did. I recommend
the ELI to students who are serious about their education and want to take their
English skills to the next level.

ADVISORY ABOUT VARIABLE ENROLLMENTS
Enrollment numbers in our Academic, Conversation, and Conversation and Fluency programs vary greatly from month to month. If our placement tests indicate
that a student’s English proficiency level does not permit placement in the original 4-week program class, we may place the student in 4 weeks of study in a
corresponding 8-week program, or we may provide a combination of classes to ensure a full-time program of 20 hours per week (or 10 hours per week if the
student is enrolled in the part-time Conversation program) for 4 weeks. Alternatively, we may decide to place all 4-week program students in level-appropriate
classes in a corresponding 8-week program of 20 hours per week for 4 weeks. When this happens, the students’ 4-week program will have the features described
for the new 8-week program, not the features described for the original program. The hours, tuition, and fees for the students’ 4-week program will remain the same.

*ADVISORY ABOUT LEVEL REQUIREMENTS
Only students who test into high-intermediate and advanced levels on UC San Diego-ELI placement exams will be accepted into the Academic English,
Business English, English for Pharmaceutical Studies, Legal English for Business, and Medical English programs. This level requirement corresponds to a
minimum score of approximately 60 on the TOEFL iBT, 5.0 on the IELTS, or 160 on the Cambridge Exam: First (FCE). Students who do not qualify will be
transferred to the Conversation and Fluency program. In April, May, June, and October, when the Conversation and Fluency program is not offered, students
testing lower than high-intermediate will receive a combination of classes to ensure a full-time program of 20 hours per week for four weeks.

                                                     UC San Diego has many factors that make me feel comfortable, including the
                                                     quality of the teachers. All my teachers show a great understanding of their job
                                                     and they transmit information to the students successfully. The campus also has
                                                     many green areas that I find relaxing and beautiful. However, my most enjoyable
                                                     experience at UC San Diego was making friends and practicing speaking English
                                                     as much as I could with my new friends. Getting to know people from around the
                                                     world was the best experience I’ve ever had−just incredible.

       The Intensive Legal English program was extremely important for my career. It
     prepared me to apply for law school and pursue a master degree in Comparative
       Law. It really helped me improve my English skills and also provided me with a
    necessary overview of the most important topics of American Law. I am currently
       attending the University of San Diego (USD) School of Law and working on my
     LLM in Comparative Law. After graduation, I plan to sit for the California Bar, so I
                                                 will be licensed to practice law here.

WORK EXPERIENCE AND UNIVERSITY STUDY

WORK EXPERIENCE: OPTIONAL PRACTICAL TRAINING (OPT)
After one academic year (three consecutive quarters) of full-time study in a non-language program in the United States, students with F-1 status can apply for
permission to work up to 12 months in their field of study as a practical application of what they have learned. This is called Optional Practical Training (OPT).
The International Student Services (ISS) staff will assist students with their application for OPT and continue advising and supporting their employment
authorization period. The ISS staff has a very high success rate with OPT applications. They cannot, however, guarantee the approval of the application by the
U.S. government. Please note that the International Student Services staff does not assist with job search or job placement services.

APPLYING FOR UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSION TO UC SAN DIEGO
It is difficult to enter UC San Diego as a foreign student in the first year. It is much easier to transfer from a California community college (after two years of
study) into the third year at UC San Diego. In recent years over 90% of UC San Diego transfer students come from California community colleges. This is the
best pathway to undergraduate UC San Diego admission for most international students. For more information on undergraduate admission to UC San Diego,
visit: admissions.ucsd.edu/international.

Students interested in taking UC San Diego or Extension courses should see the IPU program (page 12), the UPA program (page 12), or the UPS program (page
14). For more information about professional certificates for international students, please see the Business Certificate programs (pages 17-21) or the TEFL
Certificate programs (pages 22-23).

CONDITIONAL ADMISSION OR PATHWAY INTO A CERTIFICATE, COLLEGE, OR UNIVERSITY DEGREE PROGRAM
The UC San Diego English Language Institute (ELI) has conditional admission agreements allowing ELI students who have achieved a high level of English
proficiency from their studies at the UC San Diego ELI to gain full admission into a certificate, college, or university degree program. Our current partners
include California State University Chico, University of San Diego School of Law, Thomas Jefferson School of Law, California Western School of Law, Alliant
International University Master’s in TESOL, and Palomar College. Please contact the Academic Advisor for more information at eliadvisor@ucsd.edu.

THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY,
AND THE CALIFORNIA COMMUNITY COLLEGES
The University of California has 10 campuses, more than 238,000 students, and is designed for the best qualified students. Only the top 12.5% of California
high school students are eligible for entry, but a much smaller percentage is accepted. universityofcalifornia.edu
The California State University has 23 campuses, over 479,000 students, and is much more inclusive than the University of California system. The top 25% of
California high school students are eligible for entry. calstate.edu
The California Community Colleges has 113 campuses, over 2.1 million students, and provides the first two years of college education only. Students spend
their first two years at a community college and then transfer to one of the campuses of the University of California or California State University, to complete
their last two years of undergraduate study. cccco.edu

         My main goal is to get into a very good graduate program after my bachelor’s
       degree. By attending the UC San Diego Summer Session, I had an international
        experience in an outstanding university very well ranked in my major, which is
    Political Science. This will definitely give a magic touch to my application for Ph.D.
     programs in the U.S. After completing a Ph.D., I plan to return to Africa to help in
                                          community projects to reduce extreme poverty.
