About Virginia CommonWealth University

Virginia Commonwealth University has evolved since its founding more than 175 years ago, taking a number of names and configurations along the way. Their past has made them who they are — diverse, engaged and ambitious. VCU has a tradition of being first — a necessary practice when one is trying to provide the very best education in rapidly evolving times. They put one foot in front of the other, just like everybody else. They just happen to be one step ahead. Since its founding, the university has combined the traditional and non-traditional, embracing diversity in their academic programs, campus events, students, faculty and staff. They like to cross boundaries, not create them. They seek and support students who demonstrate intellectual curiosity, community engagement and creative thinking. They value the insights and culture that their international students contribute, while understanding the challenges of moving to a foreign country far away from home. The staffs at their Global Education Office are dedicated to easing the transition for international students and making sure that they succeed. Virginia Commonwealth University is a comprehensive, public university whose mission is to provide a fertile, stimulating environment for teaching, learning, research, comprehensive medical care and service, to promote the pursuit of knowledge, and, to disseminate professional skills. They are a premier urban, public research university focused on academic success. They take pride in their nationally ranked academic programs and academic medical centre, research and scholarly productivity, and engagement with the communities they serve and change.

At Virginia Commonwealth University, they believe that world-class academics extend far beyond the classroom. VCU is ranked one of the top 200 universities in the world — and it’s located in a capital city that is full of diverse culture and real-world opportunities. With more than 248 million in sponsored research funding, VCU is one of the top research universities in the U.S., and its diverse community of faculty and staff supports its students and shares their characteristics of dedication, motivation, passion, perseverance, creativity and intelligence. VCU offers internships with Fortune 500 companies and more than 100 service-learning courses. VCU’s international students come to campus from 100 countries around the world to study in more than 170 degree-seeking programs.

VCU has more than 31,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional students, including roughly 1,500 international students. The university offers more than 220 degree and certificate programs in the arts, sciences and humanities. Thirty-three graduate and first-professional programs are ranked among the best in the country, including nurse anaesthesia and sculpture at No. 1. The VCU Medical Centre, one of the nation’s leading academic medical centres, is the site of first-rate undergraduate and graduate education and research. VCU consists of two campuses — the Monroe Park Campus, located in the picturesque early 20th-century residential neighbourhood called the Fan District, and the MCV Campus, located in Richmond’s thriving downtown financial area. VCU is located in the heart of Richmond, the capital of Virginia since 1779. They are just an easy day trip away from Virginia Beach, Colonial Williamsburg, the Blue Ridge Mountains or Washington, D.C.
