The University of California Berkeley has around 40,000 students in total and is the oldest university in California. In terms of achievement, the university alumni hold 72 Nobel prizes, 20 Academy Awards and 11 Pulitzers to their names, as well as a host of other prestigious prizes and accolades.
There’s over a hundred different majors and minors at undergraduate level, and many more at higher levels as well. Thankfully, since the cost of living and in particular accommodation are so extortionate out on the west coast, the university provides some guidance for Housing at Berkeley to help you out. The campus is situated in the heart of Berkeley, so you’ll be in the thick of the action at one of the most prestigious universities in the world - enjoy!
