International Students

Our doors are open to you.


Our international students bring their culture, language and history to a university that encourages them to voice their unique perspective. We recognize the benefit of including voices from all over the world. It’s part of our strength. And it allows all UD students to broaden their worldview while working toward a better future.

UD students achieve success by working alongside faculty that encourage and challenge them, preparing them to make their ideas a reality.


Graduating to Greatness

International students at UD are idea giants. Our student outcomes prove it. Graduates include the founder of China’s first social-media network and innovators in touch-screen technology.
