Live Vedaweb™ Internet Classes
The California College of Ayurveda broadcasts its full-time and weekend programs live over the internet using Vedaweb™ technology. International students may attend these classes, however time zone differences can make attendance difficult. Learn more about CCA’s flexible learning formats.
Internship Preparation Intensive
At the beginning of each internship all students must attend an in-person intensive at the Nevada City campus. There are no exceptions to this.
Because of the structure of the educational programs at the California College of Ayurveda, international students cannot receive a special student visa to stay in our country and study for an extended period of time. International students should apply for a regular tourist visa. Please note the California College of Ayurveda does not check the immigration status of our students. You will not be required to show a visa to attend classes.
We cannot assist students in obtaining a visa. All visas must be obtained from an American embassy or consulate. For more information refer to the U.S. Department of State website. For embassy and consulate locations, refer to www.usembassy.gov.
