International Students

The School of Public Health-Bloomington welcomes students from all over the world. We appreciate and cultivate the academic and cultural enrichment provided by a diverse student body. We invite international students not only to study here, but to share your knowledge and culture with our students and faculty. 

International students are an important part of our community. In fact, 10 percent of IU students are from outside the United States. The reputation of our degree programs and faculty has brought students here from all over the world, and all our students benefit from hearing about the diverse experiences and perspectives of international students.
