How you spend your summers is something top-tier American universities will be interested in when you apply for college. Universities like to hear about meaningful, well-planned, self-motivated, and challenging life experiences, demonstrating a persistent drive to challenge oneself to accomplish goals.
Academic Talent Development Program (ATDP) of UC Berkeley by the Graduate School of Education is designed to do just that - to challenge you and sharpen your academic profile for your future educational pursuits. This experience provides valuable exposure to American education at a world-renowned university, allowing for international students to develop independent critical thinking skills, get a taste of American campus life, and participate in exciting cultural events and tours.
This is more than a recreational summer camp or an elite college campus tour; ATDP is an academic enrichment program that promotes learning and academic exploration, giving motivated students a priceless learning opportunity.
