UC Davis Today: Embracing the world
Embracing the world: International engagement
The university community includes students and scholars from more than 100 countries and six continents — totaling more than 5,000 international students, faculty, and researchers and their accompanying family members who come to UC Davis each year. They come to study biology, agriculture, and yes, veterinary medicine, among other disciplines. In fact, UC Davis is one of the top five U.S. universities in the number of international scholars it hosts.
Our campus enjoys active relationships with global partners and provides international educational experiences for many students. Most recently, UC Davis partnered with two Brazilian agencies for research and education to bring up to 100 of that country's students to campus each year. In addition, the Education Abroad Center helps students explore the many options to study internationally.
