San Diego is a wonderful city. It is right by the sea, the climate is wonderful and there are so many sights that even after half a year you have the feeling that you have not yet seen everything.

You can enjoy the most beautiful beaches in California , learn to surf (if you don’t take a “surf class” at university), go hiking to Potato Chip Rock or Torrey Pines or…

Why CSUEB I chose California State University East Bay because there is a quarter system here. Many universities have a semester system. These were all dropped in advance, since the semester starts at almost all universities at the beginning of February, but I myself write exams in Germany until mid-February. The second decisive reason for the CSUEB is the location. In about 35 minutes with the “beard” you are in the middle of one of the most beautiful cities in…

Hello dear future East Bay students. I spent half a year at Cal State East Bay in Hayward and definitely had a great time with lots of great experiences and impressions, although it must of course be said that not everything was just positive. I would do a semester abroad again at any time, especially in beautiful California. FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF HAYWARD When I arrived I got a bit of a culture shock and wanted to go back to Germany,…

Spending my semester abroad at California State University East Bay was the best decision of my life and I had an unforgettable time. The support from MicroEDU was great throughout and so the time required to organize the stay abroad was less than expected. But in addition to visa application, international health insurance, applying for an international driver’s license, information about accommodation options, etc., one should not underestimate the course selection for the upcoming quarter / semester and plan enough…

1. CSUEB California State University East Bay is a normal American university. After the introduction, during which various organizational conditions were clarified, one was led into the so-called Course Crashing. As a foreign student is enrolled a little later than the native student, you have to enroll in the courses later. You attend the first hour of the respective course that you want to have and get a signature from the lecturer, which (mostly) lets you into a course. Because…

First of all, it is important for me to emphasize how good the support from MicroEDU was from the first application to one or the other problem to be solved on site. Questions were always responded to immediately so that problems could be solved quickly. MicroEDU also got in touch with the people at the university directly if they couldn’t find a contact themselves – which often helped me a lot. Regarding the course content, I am very satisfied with…

My international experience in the USA After landing in San Francisco late that evening on July 27th, the next morning I drove to the apartment in Hayward, where I had arranged a room for rent in advance. I still remember how exciting it all was: the drive to Hayward over the Bay Bridge with a spectacular backdrop of the Pacific Ocean, exploring my new neighborhood and getting to know my three roommates. I shared the cute, quintessentially Californian house with…

Application process I had already sent my application for the Spring Quarter to MicroEDU about nine months in advance and received my acceptance six months before the start of the quarter. I applied for the CSUEB’s Open University program, which is supported by the American Language Program in Hayward. The application was very simple with the help of MicroEDU and without complications. Proof of English was the only application requirement that you might have had to take care of if…

When I received the information letter from my university in mid-2011 that there was the possibility of studying abroad for a semester, I was amazed. However, the partner universities didn’t really speak to me, either I had already seen the cities or I didn’t speak the national language. But there was also the possibility to look for a suitable university in another country yourself. So I started looking for a university in English-speaking countries. In addition to England and Australia,…

Spring Quarter at CSUEB Preparations When I started looking for a semester abroad and I had to exclude the usual organizations and funding aids such as ERASMUS for various reasons, I had almost discarded my plans when I found out about MicroEDU by chance. Together with the possibility of receiving foreign student loans, the semester abroad should still be given a chance. When choosing the university, price, course offer and gut instinct were ultimately decisive. I decided to do the…
