Students with big ideas will find a home for innovative thinking at the University of Delaware (UD). Established in 1743, UD seeks to recruit the next wave of student pioneers eager to make a positive impact on the world.
Attracting students from 105 countries, UD welcomes all cultures and experiences. International students are provided with support from orientation week until graduation, and there are countless activities to get involved with outside of classes. Students will make new friends, vastly improve their career prospects and have an unforgettable time.
UD is nestled in the north of Delaware, a location that allows easy access to destinations throughout the East Coast and around the world. Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York City and Washington, D.C. can be reached by car or train in just a few hours.
As well as an invaluable education and strong community spirit, there is a lot UD can offer. There are merit-based international scholarships for the brightest students. Career Services provides invaluable assistance for life after graduation. 95 percent of students graduating with a bachelor’s degree are employed or pursuing further education within six months of graduation. For some majors that percentage is even higher. It’s no wonder so many international students are attracted to this East Coast institution.
What’s more, UD has a variety of programs for non-native English-speaking students, including the International Foundation Semester, admitting students with a 79-89 TOEFL score directly to the university. The International Foundation Semester is a semester-long program to enhance a student’s mastery of English. Other programs are provided by the English Language Institute (ELI), which teaches English to those who wish to study at UD but can’t meet the language requirements. The pathway program, Academic Transitions, allows international students to gain up to 27 university credits while working towards improving their English-language skills.
