University of Kansas offers the quintessential American College Experience to its students. Every year we welcome students from 100+ countries around the globe. This diversity is also reflected in our faculty, academic programs and exchanges. Know how KU has helped in transforming lives of our International Students:   

- Jinny, from China, studying Business as her major shares her experience of life:
“I wanted to go to KU because I knew that America is a country of immigrants and so people are accepting of different cultures there. Studying here at KU, American people treat me nicely, and I think it’s because KU has many international students.”
- Saharsh
, from India, studying Computer Science as his major document shares his experience of studying in an International University: 

“This is my first-time visiting America, so arriving here was kind of a cultural shock. Luckily, I found a lot of very friendly people. Close to bigger cities like Kansas City, Lawrence is a small, friendly town. I’ve also had a lot of fun going to KU basketball games. The student section is so loud because we all cheer the KU chants together, and of course KU almost always wins, too!”  

- Abdul Aziz, from United Arab Emirates, studying Petroleum Engineering discusses how KU’s faculty has encouraged him to perform better:

“I like my teachers, especially my English professor. She once sent mean email saying that I was one of the top students in her class, and if I worked really hard I could be top of the class. I felt really good that she sent me that email, and it showed me that she cared. It also motivated me to work harder.”
