They can be especially helpful:
- When you do not know where to study
- When you want to study in a particular city or region but do not know which school to choose
- When you want information about a longer study plan: for example, English language study followed by a university degree program, a certificate program, or a vocational program
- When you need information and assistance with the visa process
Are there extra costs?
Fees for UCLA Extension and American Language Center programs should be the same regardless of whether you apply directly or with the help of an agency. However, some agencies provide additional services, and they may charge extra for more complicated programs and for extra service.
How can I find an Overseas Representative?
In many countries, there is a Fulbright Office or U.S. Information Center where you can find lists of agencies. Although the American Language Center (ALC) does not have study abroad representatives in every country and city, we have many partners around the world.
See the list below for some of the ALC’s active agencies by country.
