International Profile

The University of Toledo is known for academic programs in engineering, pharmacy, medicine, the sciences, and communication and the arts, as well as its expertise in solar and advanced renewable energy, environmental sciences, astronomical research, translational research, and biomarkers.

UT offers more than 230 doctoral, professional, graduate, and undergraduate programs. UT offers research opportunities for students starting at the undergraduate level in all majors. Our students work in faculty members’ labs, perform studies in the field, travel to local and national sites to gather data, and more. Check with your intended academic program to see what opportunities are available.

UT’s classes involve experiential learning, which means learning by doing. Some of this can involve research, but other experiential learning opportunities include service projects in the local community, practicing skills in a simulation center, and finding an internship/co-op in your field of study. Opportunities vary by major, so be sure to check with your program advisor.

Open to international undergraduate students, the Jesup Scott Honors College is named after UT’s founder and is UT’s highest academic honor. It features challenging, interactive courses; experiential learning opportunities; and optional three-year degree programs. Honors students may get preferred admission to some of UT’s graduate programs too.

All new undergraduate international students and English language students are generally required to live on campus, where you’ll find a safe environment close to your classes and full of opportunities to be involved. There are two types of housing offered: traditional and suite style. Traditional residence halls have rooms that open into an interior hallway with shared bathroom facilities on each floor. Suite-style residence halls have two or three bedrooms joined by a common living area and shared bathroom facilities by suite. There is a housing requirement of two years on campus for first-time freshmen direct from high school who are coming from outside of a 25-mile radius of UT.
