International students, representing 105 countries, comprise nearly 25% of UD's graduate population. Some of our top countries include China, India, and Korea. Around the world you‚ will find them, too, traveling by moped through the jungles of Sumatra to document and save endangered languages, plunging to the floor of the Pacific Ocean in a submersible to study how life can thrive in a deep, dark world, documenting 18th-century churches in Brazil, and learning international business skills in a joint program with the Grenoble Graduate School of Business at the foot of the French Alps.
Once you have been admitted by your academic department AND the Office of Graduate & Professional Education you will recieve your I-20 as long as you have been able to provide evidence of sufficient financial funding ( UD support or family and/or personal funds). This form normally is included in your admission packet if we have recieved the appropriate information.
