Scheduling for Success

The MTM experience requires students to schedule their days well, in order to take full advantage of both universities. There are good public transport links between Berkeley and UCSF, and students should plan to travel between campuses a few times each week although all required courses at UCSF are scheduled on one day during the week to minimize travel days. Many find it convenient to live near a BART station to simplify logistics.

UC Berkeley and UCSF are on different academic calendars, with Berkeley on the semester system and UCSF using quarters. The MTM follows both: the program and classes start in mid-August and end in mid-June.
