We host more than 4,000 international students, operate a growing international microcampus network, and offer more than 200 study abroad programs in the world’s most exciting places.
“I chose to go to Germany because it’s a great place for automotive engineering, and my study abroad program had a great balance of traveling throughout Europe and gaining technical knowledge and experience,” says Arizona Study Abroad alum Edward Monteverde, Jr.
“International. It’s in Our DNA”
Are you based at the University of Arizona and want to take your academic interests abroad? Want to visit Arizona to teach or research? The International team can help. We support more than 1,300 international faculty members and scholars and advocate for international fellows. We have a history as a top producer of Fulbright scholars.
"I'm convinced I have learned far more from my colleagues and students than I ever imparted. That is what the Fulbright experience is all about—the give-and-take educational process that is required for intercultural understanding,” says Melissa Fitch, University Distinguished Professor in the College of Humanities.
“International. Bold ideas require global connections.”

“For a long time, the University of Arizona has supported the University of Sonora. We share so much: Geography, climate, and opportunities because in a lot of ways we are the same people—and we want to strengthen this relationship even more,” says Enrique Fernando Velázquez Contreras, rector of Universidad de Sonora.
