About Harvard University

Harvard University is devoted to excellence in teaching, learning, and research, and to developing leaders in many disciplines who make a difference globally. The University, which is based in Cambridge and Boston, Massachusetts, has an enrolment of over 20,000 degree candidates, including undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. Harvard has more than 360,000 alumni around the world. Harvard is the oldest institution of higher education in the United States, established in 1636 by vote of the Great and General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. It was named after the College’s first benefactor, the young minister John Harvard of Charlestown, who upon his death in 1638 left his library and half his estate to the institution. A statue of John Harvard stands today in front of University Hall in Harvard Yard, and is perhaps the University’s best known landmark. Harvard’s leadership is responsible for the strategic vision for the University. Established in 1962, they meet and greet visitors from all over the world. Their mission is to serve as the “front door” to the University by providing historical and general information about their campus to visitors, neighbours and the public. Harvard University has 12 degree-granting schools in addition to the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. The University has grown from nine students with a single master to an enrolment of more than 20,000 degree candidates including undergraduate, graduate, and professional students.

Harvard faculty are engaged with teaching and research to push the boundaries of human knowledge. For students who are excited to investigate the biggest issues of the 21st century, Harvard offers an unparalleled student experience and a generous financial aid program, with over 160 million awarded to more than 60% of their undergraduate students. The University has twelve degree-granting Schools in addition to the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, offering a truly global education. People make a university great, so whether you are a prospective student, current student, professor, researcher, staff member, graduate, parent, neighbour, or visitor, your interest and enthusiasm are valued and appreciated. Applicants from outside the United States go through the same admissions process as American students, they do not categorize individual applicants in such a way. They have no quotas of any kind for admission, all applications are evaluated by the same criteria, and financial aid is equally available to all students regardless of citizenship. Harvard’s campus creates a stunning backdrop for all that happens within the University. Harvard offers unparalleled resources to the University community, including libraries, laboratories, museums, and research centers to support scholarly work in nearly any field or discipline. The Harvard student experience is characterized by unlimited possibilities. Opportunities abound inside the classroom and out, with over 8,000 courses from over 100 departments and countless research programs.
