            1986-1990, International Relations

            UOP in Stockton, CA - Law, Pharmacy, Liberal Arts, Engineering and MORE

            UOP is an amazing school with a beautiful campus where students can really concentrate on their studies and participate in a number of activities and sports. I had only about 10-20 classmates in each class at the School of Intl. Studies and even the larger lecture-type classes are much smaller than most universities so students get one-on-one time with professors. Don't be put off by the tuition cost, there are scholarships and grants available and work-study programs - That's how I did it and I am very grateful to have had the opportunity. I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have about the school, types of programs, campus, or study abroad programs.

          • Testimony
            1995-1995, California, USA. Postgraduate Scholarship

            Best in class education, complemented with truly diversed global classmates

            I won a scholaship and I enjoyed the most memorable experience of my education at UOP. The university offers high quality education, with outstanding professors who will influence you in ways you cannot imagine. I will never forget the time I spent with classmates from the US, Japan, Colombia, Netherlands, Norway, Germany, among others, at the Bechtel International Center. Living in John Ballantyne Hall was a great experience and team spirit. So much reading, learning, conversations, debate, sports and loving memories I'll never forget. I am and always be, a passionate tiger! (Go tigers go!)
