This is my second time and when I got the chance to study here again I grabbed the chance as fast as possible. I have better contact with my professors and the student environment is unlike any other. I really had no idea that this was gonna be such an inspirational year!

My professors inspire me to study, they make me want to learn! My colleagues are outstanding and showed me that studying and cooperating will make us go far!

After taking classes at Berkeley, I have a new point of view of my own country and the world in general. The professors were excellent, helpful and nice.

What I liked best about BISP is that you can actually get to live the UC Berkeley experience, just as any regular student. I didn’t feel like “the international students group”.
