I'd assume that the university to which you're planning to study at, would have some sort of housing office that could help you find a place to stay.

Check out the university's website.

University of California has many different campuses: Los Angeles, San Diego, Davis, Santa Barbara, Berkely, etc. You'll need to figure out where you want to live first and what campus best suits your major and all of that.

Yes, feel free to PM me, I am VERY familiar with UC Berkeley, UCLA, and UC Irvine, along with some knowledge of UC San Diego and UC Davis.

(I did my bachelors at UC Berkeley, Masters at UCI, and am doing my PhD at UCLA).

I'm pretty sure (at least from what I've seen) if you get into the UCs on a transfer (exchange program or something) you can take any class, so I don't think you'd have to worry about that.

Each school probably has an exchange set up of some sort that would have more info in that respect, though where on the website you'd find that info I'm not entirely clear on... (i'll take a quick look later and see if I come across anything).

EDIT: I guess what are you looking for, to pick a specific UC? because then you should look at what you want to take, where you want to live (ie how much you want to spend, near the ocean, warmer, colder, places you can live without a car, etc)...

well i would like to stay near the beach of course, who doesn't want that? and unfortunately i don't have a car and i don't have so much money. so i think my wishes won't come true. but i would love to study in cali and live the american way of life...
