Medical treatment in the United States can be very expensive and therefore University of California requires that all students purchase their Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) or an alternate plan with equivalent coverage. The cost of this insurance in the 2021-22 academic year was $1,894 per semester (or around £1,400).
Most students will need to apply for a J1 exchange visitor visa to study at University of California. It is the student's responsibility to apply for the appropriate student visa.
