Going to school far from home is exciting and, at times, intimidating. At the University of Oregon, we work hard to make sure you feel at home.
When you arrive at the UO, you'll be among more than 3,200 international students from 103 countries who all have at least one thing in common: the desire to attend a top-notch university known for its academic excellence, located in one of the most beautiful regions of the United States. U.S. News and World Report's 2017 annual rankings of graduate schools in education places the University of Oregon College of Education No. 12 among all colleges of education and No. 5 among public institutions in that category. Again, Special Education ranked No. 3 overall for 17 years running, the highest ranking of any graduate program at UO. Our faculty are among the most productive in the world, bringing in more than $43 million in external funding that impacts schools and communities in Oregon, across the US, and around the world, including South Africa, the US Virgin Islands, Laos, Saudi Arabia, and many more countries.
