On 25 November, Anthony Yuen from the University of California, Berkeley, joined staff and students of American Studies Leipzig for a brownbag roundtable discussion about studying abroad in California.
Anthony Yuen has over nine years of experience in international education, including UCLA, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and UC Berkeley. Since 2008, he has worked in international affairs at UC Berkeley, managing student exchange programs, international partnerships, and strategic communication for the university‘s study abroad office.
Mr. Yuen shared his expertise and presented current trends in studying abroad in California. What became visible is that, although the numbers of University of California students spending a semester or year abroad are increasing, too many are still hesitant to do so. For that reason, Mr. Yuen is constantly working to promote transatlantic exchange in California.
Besides, Mr. Yuen also discussed different possibilities for German students to study abroad in California. He introduced the audience to the University of California system, a network of 10 campuses with over 200,000 students.
