The ELC Summer Junior Program at the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) offers a spectacular and sunny location that gives students access to outdoor activities and is within walking distance to the beach. During June and July, students enrolled in our Summer Junior Program at UCSB will live in a UCSB dormitory. Summer Junior Program students will take English classes in the mornings and be able to choose one of three activity programs in the afternoon: our Classic Program, Outdoor Explorer Program, or Surf Explorer Program. On the weekends, students will be able to participate in optional Saturday activities and an included full-day excursion on Sunday.
ELC offers two choices of accommodation options at our UCSB Summer Junior Program. Students in our UCSB program can choose a UCSB dormitory or can participate in our program as a day student, without accommodation.
Students participate in Morning Courses Monday-Friday. Morning Courses are compulsory and are included in the Summer Junior Program package. Morning Courses do not occur on Saturdays or Sundays.
Junior Program students participate in activities Monday-Friday after their courses. Afternoon activities are compulsory and are included in the Summer Junior Program package. Evening and Saturday activities are always optional and offered to all students. ELC always offers a combination of free and low-cost evening and Saturday activities. Please refer to the sample calendar for sample activities.
Students at UCSB may choose from up to three different Activities Programs for their afternoon activity at no additional cost. Students may choose up to one program each week. Students must choose their selection at enrollment to ensure availability.
