International Students

A global education in the United States

Nearly one in four Suffolk students come from outside the United States. Given our experience and continued global presence, we are experts at helping students adjust to their new home away from home.

At Suffolk, you can experience an American education at a university recognized by U.S. News & World Report as having the fifth-largest proportion of international students among United States institutions. Going to school in an international city means you'll have access to cultural centers, Fortune 500 companies, historic landmarks, and a wealth of other educational and extracurricular activities. Suffolk students live their education every day—and each has his or her own story of learning and thriving in Boston.
