UCLA students have access to high-quality online and videoconferenced language courses from other UC campuses.

University of California campuses offer an extensive selection of languages. The UC Consortium for Language Learning and Teaching and UCLA Center for World Languages use distance learning and videoconferencing technologies to bring together students and faculty from various campuses to study less-commonly taught languages.

  • Undergraduate students request enrollment using the UC Simultaneous Enrollment Application.
  • Graduate students enroll though the Intercampus Exchange Program.
  • Non-UC students may enroll with consent of instructor through UCLA Extension.

Consult the Registrar’s Office on the respective campus for details about where to obtain an enrollment form and for policies that apply to simultaneous enrollment on each campus.

Distance Learning Resources for Faculty

Distance learning courses connect students and faculty real-time to sites outside UCLA, including other universities and institutions around the world. Through the use of videoconference technology, participants at both sites can see and hear each other, and multi-site conferencing is available to enable students at three or four different locations to take the same course together. Distance learning courses and videoconferencing can take place wherever there is a network connection to the Internet, which includes 80 percent of general assignment classrooms at UCLA. In addition, there are facilities on campus dedicated for use as distance learning classrooms and for videoconferencing. Faculty interested in offering a distance learning class can contact Don Roby at 310-206-7449 or send e-mail to vidcon@ucla.edu.
