How We Serve KU

We bring scholars and faculty from across the globe to KU, adding new perspectives, knowledge, and research experiences to classrooms and labs. 

Through our recruitment, admissions, immigration services, English language programs, and academic bridge programs, we support more than 2000 international graduate and undergraduate students from over 100 countries as they fully engage as Jayhawks on the KU campuses. 

We develop study, intern, and research programs in over 70 countries across the globe in collaboration with faculty and academic departments, providing opportunities for students in every field of study to have an international experience.

We support the international work and research of faculty and graduate students, advise on international funding opportunities, and support the development of intercultural skills and global awareness on campus.

We welcome short-term students and scholars to campus and provide high-quality academic and cultural programs to visitors from institutions around the world.
