UC Berkeley Extension is an academic department within UC Berkeley and is located just a few blocks away from the main campus. This department offers short-term programming for international students who want to study at Berkeley. We do not offer degrees. Instead, after you complete your studies with us, you’ll receive a certificate of completion, a transcript and the opportunity to transfer academic credits to your home university. For those of you who are working professionals, our programs will provide you with in-depth skills and learning that you can apply to your current position or a new job in the workplace.
