About the city 🌇

San Francisco started as a fort created by the Spaniards in 1776 next to the location of the Golden Gate Bridge today. For decades, the city remained relatively small. Then in 1848, the Gold Rush drew thousands of people to California hoping to strike the rich. The population of San Francisco jumped from 1,000 to 25,000 people. This established the city as an economic epicenter not only on the West Coast, but throughout the United States.

In today, San Francisco is home to 8.7 million residents and, in addition, the headquarters of multibillion-dollar businesses and start-ups, making studios in San Francisco the perfect destination for development and networking. In addition to being a true business hub, San Francisco is a hub for Internet technology with close relationships with Silicon Valley and companies that have played major roles in the dot-com and Web 2.0 boom (like Google, Facebook and LinkedIn, all of which have their headquarters in San Francisco).

The city has a wealth of restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs that make it one of the liveliest cities in California. With its vibrant daily life and not least the world famous nightlife. With its ideal climate for daylight warmth and cool nights, natural beauty and unique cultural experiences, Studying abroad in San Francisco is seen by many as the ultimate experience for international students.

The experience's to-do list includes attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Coit Tower and Chinatown. A novelty in San Francisco is the cable cars that have begun whizzing through the city center. Also, there are stunning coastlines to hike along such as the Presidio or Golden Gate Park, and lovely beaches to relax on in, among others, North Beach or Santa Cruz. If you need a getaway from big city life, visit California wine country just a few hours away in Napa Valley or ski in the mountains around Lake Tahoe.

Housing 🏡


Students have the opportunity to experience authentic American culture through Homestay. The Homestay solution is a guaranteed location for a family that wants to host an international student and can give you a true insight into the American way of life. Students get a room and several meals a day for a total of $900 a month.

What is particularly popular about Homestay is that you just tie up for 2 months, which is a super short period when talking about housing in California. This means that in principle you can take half a semester under a Homestay scheme and find accommodation even afterwards if you wish.
