Information for International Applicants

International Student Admissions

The Sackler School does not admit a specific number of international students each year, but instead weighs the applications of all applicants to select those who are the best qualified. About twenty-five percent of our students come from countries outside the United States.

International applicants follow the same application procedure as domestic students. See Required Application Documents for information.  info

Sackler students in the Basic Science Division from outside the United States who are accepted into funded slots receive the same tuition scholarship and stipend as US citizens and permanent residents. 

See Financing Your Education for information.  info

Please note, the MD/PhD program accepts only United States citizens and permanent residents.

Information for accepted applicants, including visa information, can be found here. info
