Meet Ivana Bonaccorsi: This Is How She Is Changing the Lives Of International Students Seeking to Study Abroad

Ivana Bonaccorsi is incredibly dedicated to helping students have life-changing experiences through their studies abroad. Ms. Bonaccorsi is well-aware of how impactful this experience can be, as she was a study-abroad student herself.

It is evident from Ivana Bonaccorsi’s accolades that she has had a significant impact on the lives of international students who are seeking to study abroad.

How Has Ivana Bonaccorsi Aided In Making The Process For International Students Easier?

Ivana Bonaccorsi, having been a study-abroad student herself, understands that even the most seemingly trivial questions from potential students are incredibly important.

Ms. Bonaccorsi carefully listens to the needs of students to better understand what they desire out of their higher education and study abroad experience.

Luckily, Ivana Bonaccorsi goes above-and-beyond to assure that every student finds the study-abroad program that is right for them. Furthermore, Ivana helps students to traverse the intricacies of studying and living in San Diego, the application process, payment, and other procedures.

Studying Abroad At the University of California San Diego:

At the University of California San Diego Extension the student body is incredibly diverse. Study-abroad students come to UC San Diego from all around the world to study language skills, attend university programs or professional certificate programs. The Extension department even offers youth summer programs for high school students. The UCSD Extension English Language Institute has conditional admission agreements with several wonderful universities in the United States. In fact, many international students choose the University of California San Diego’s English Language (ELI) program as a pathway to enter degree programs in various American universities.

UCSD Extension ELI offers language programs at all levels, from novice to advanced. Additionally, the university credit program, which is available to international students, is an excellent opportunity for those who would like to earn credits towards their undergraduate degrees in the United States, while also furthering their knowledge in a specific field. The University of California San Diego has a wide array of options for students who are studying abroad. Many are looking to further their knowledge in their areas of expertise, others looking to acquire new skills, while still more are wanting to take their careers to a new level, or set off on a new career path entirely. No matter what these ambitious students’ ultimate goals may be, Ivana Bonaccorsi is there to assist them every step of the way.
