International Student Life
Tufts University enjoys an international reputation for academic excellence and a long tradition of attracting students from all over the globe. The undergraduate student body represents more than 65 countries. Of the 4,800 undergraduates, 8 percent are non-U.S. citizens. Nearly 16% of undergraduates are foreign citizens, permanent residents, or U.S. citizens who live overseas.
Undergraduate Global Orientation
To welcome new international students to campus, Tufts hosts an Global Orientation (GO). First-year students from around the world converge before any other first-years get to campus, giving them time to adjust not only to a new campus, but also to life in a new country. Learn More.
Tufts International Center
Serving the international community at Tufts since the 1950s, the International Center facilitates college-wide intercultural exchange. The Center staff works to raise intercultural awareness, to increase knowledge of immigration laws affecting the Tufts international community, and to advocate a campus climate that respects cultural differences.
