Semester-long study for visiting international students

Founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819, the University of Virginia remains distinctive in the 21st century. UVA offers the vast intellectual resources of a major research university, but fosters the intimacy, sense of community, and dedication to undergraduate life typically found at a small liberal arts college.  

Eligibility for Semester-Long Study

  • Applicants must be currently enrolled in an educational institution and have completed at least one full semester of undergraduate study.
  • Applicants must not have completed their undergraduate degree before arriving at UVA.
  • Applicants must be in good academic and disciplinary standing at their home institution with a minimum GPA equivalent of a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
 

English Language Proficiency

  • English is the language of instruction at the University of Virginia. If your first language is not English and the language of instruction at your home institution is not English, an ibt TOEFL score of at least 100 or IELTS score of 7 or higher is required.
