International students have always been an integral part of Vanderbilt's student body. In fact, the university has enrolled students from other countries for all but two years since it opened its doors in 1875.
Vanderbilt's first class included students from Mexico and Germany and an American resident of China. International students have since participated in virtually every facet of the university community, breaking barriers in research, the arts and more.
We welcome you to apply for admission to Vanderbilt. You will be joining a select group of more than 1,100 international students who currently represent 101 countries from around the world -- and who now call Vanderbilt home.
