Information for International Applicants

The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences 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.

GSBS 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.

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

See information for accepted applicants, including visa information.
