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 several times each week. 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 starts in mid-August and ends in mid-June.
