Welcome to the International Office

As the central home for international student and scholar services, study abroad, English as a Second Language instruction, global risk and safety, and cross-disciplinary international projects, the International Office leads the development and implementation of the university’s international academic strategy.

We believe that students must have an appreciation for other cultures, languages, and histories to become effective global leaders. That’s why the International Office is honored to provide leadership, expertise and coordination to UT Austin faculty, students and staff, and to offer programs and services that educate leaders for a global economy, create global connections and impact the world.

Ours is a truly international community. More than 3,000 Longhorns take their education abroad each year while over 7,000 international students, scholars, and students of English as a Second Language come to UT from over 120 countries.

We believe this diversity helps make UT Austin not only a leading global university but also a global force for good.

Our commitment to global education is reflected in our many achievements, including:

  • Highest study abroad participation among U.S. public universities
  • Third highest study abroad participation among all U.S. universities
  • Awards for innovation and access to study abroad
  • Top 25 largest international student populations
  • Prestigious international partners and grant awards
  • Accredited and robust English as a Second Language training
  • Leader in global risk and safety standards for university travel oversight
