University of San Diego
In 1949 the College for Women was established in San Diego, closely followed in 1954 by the College for Men and the School of Law. In 1972, the colleges merged and formed what is now the University of San Diego. Today, the University of San Diego is a nationally ranked Catholic institution with more than 800 faculty members and 7,800 undergraduate, graduate and law students. The 180-acre campus houses buildings that encompass more than two million square feet and provide educational, administrative, residential, athletic, dining and support services.
The exchange agreement between King's and The University of San Diego allows for the following:
Law Students - up to 4 Semester places are available for this institution. This equates to 2 students going for a full academic year OR 4 students for a single semester or a combination of the two.
Eligibility for King's students
Important: Final decision on students' study abroad application to their host institution rests entirely with that host institution. Students must also meet their departments’ academic requirements to obtain final departmental approval to study abroad. It is usually at least a 60% average prior to departure, however this can vary amongst departments. Students should double check with their Study Abroad Tutor if they are unsure of their academic requirements.
King’s students that wish to study abroad at this institution should check the ‘Undergraduate options by department’ page to see if this institution is indeed an option for them.
Estimated living costs
Please see here for current estimated living costs, but actual expenses may vary depending on student lifestyle. The cost of travel to and from the country is not included in these estimates.
A reminder that King's students on exchange are not required to pay tuition fees to the host university, but you may incur administrative and/or orientation fees at the host. There may also be mandatory insurance costs, and transcripts may incur a fee.
Please also note that, if required, student visas often require applicants to supply evidence of financial support throughout the duration of the study abroad programme. Sometimes this will mean showing financial evidence for a specific amount, so please pay attention to the advice on this from the host institution.
