You are invited
Our campus is home to nearly 800 international students hailing from over 80 countries. Students come to DU from countries such as South Korea, Canada, China, Kuwait, Norway, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, and Vietnam.
We also know coming to a new country can be an intimidating process, and we have a variety of services to help make sure you feel safe and comfortable in your new home. Our goal is to help our students find success, both personally and professionally. On this website you can learn about our application requirements, take a virtual tour of campus, or let us know if you'd like more information.
Whether DU is your first step into higher education or you are transferring from another institution, we hope you will join us and contribute to our global, diverse campus.
Our students finish their degrees ready to start their careers. 90 percent of undergraduates have a job or are in graduate school within six months of graduating. Most students participate in at least one internship during their time here. Because our classes are small and there are only 12 students per faculty member, you will receive plenty of personal attention to make sure you are on track to accomplish your goals.
