Quick facts:

  • A member school of the prestigious University of California public system
  • Elite programs in management, physical science, and engineering
  • Short certificate and one-year specialization programs

Given the shorter nature of the three-year bachelor’s degree in France and other European countries, students often have difficulty gaining admission to American universities as a majority of North American students complete four-year bachelor’s degrees and complete the SAT exam in high school. In order to help European students, Study Experience is pleased to announce a partnership with the University of California-Riverside to wave the SAT and GMAT exam requirements and provide a pathway for French and other European students to gain admission to bachelor’s and master’s degrees at one of California’s best ranked public schools.
