EXPERIENCE A WORD-CLASS EDUCATION AND A STRONG CAREER NETWORK CONNECTION AT KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY
The University of Kentucky (UK) is the flagship university of the state of Kentucky. A leading public research university that is nationally and internationally ranked in a number of programs, UK is on an exciting path—one that’s conducting groundbreaking research in areas such as energy, the environment, and cancer—yet remains one of the most affordable major universities in the United States. Our amazing academics and lively campus mean that our students experience the very best of college life, both in their coursework and beyond.
With over 200 academic programs throughout our different colleges, we offer majors to suit any interest. Engineering, healthcare professions, business/management, and psychology are among some of our most highly-rated majors. The UK Gatton College of Business has many popular majors, such as management, marketing, accounting, finance, and economics. Han Tran, a 2015 graduate who majored in Marketing, explains that “UK has brought me more than I ever expected: practical knowledge and skills, rich work experiences, strong professional connections, and lifetime friendships.”
We know that scholarship opportunities play an important role in college decisions. At UK, we have several scholarship opportunities for both incoming freshmen and transfer students. And yes, it is possible to receive more than one scholarship; all three of our scholarship opportunities can, in fact, add up to a full tuition scholarship! Our International Ambassador Scholarship is a program that is very unique to UK; our International Ambassadors work with the International Center and are available to answer any questions prospective students may have about life as a UK student, academics, housing, etc. as well as share what it’s like to live in the welcoming city of Lexington, KY. This scholarship alone can be up to 50% of tuition.
Our goal at the UK International Center is to help all future Wildcats through every stage in the application process, whether this is questions about necessary documents, admissions requirements, academic programs, or visa issues—we’ll get back to you quickly, and someone will always be able to answer your questions! That support doesn’t end after you arrive on campus. The International Center staff—and your fellow international students—are always here to help you get adjusted to life in Lexington. Questions about your schedule, housing, transportation, where to eat, how to get involved in extracurriculars or clubs? We’ve got answers! International Student Services plans lots of activities to help you meet other students and become part of campus life.
At UK, we are more than just a university with stellar academics—our campus life is vibrant and active. With 18 residence halls, living on campus is a great way to find community, meet new people and integrate into the U.S. culture. It’s where you’ll make most of your friends and memories. You’ll stay close to your classmates, professors and the fun stuff happening on campus, while living within walking distance of downtown Lexington! You can also join one of UK’s many Living Learning Programs (LLPs), designed for you to learn where you live. This includes the International Village LLP, where international students are paired with U.S. students.
You can also join one (or several!) of our 600 student clubs and keep up with your interests or explore new ones. Being a student at UK also gives you the chance to experience the strongest basketball tradition in the nation. In fact, UK leads the country in NBA players! Our amazing men’s basketball program, winner of 8 NCAA National Championships, means former Kentucky players, like Anthony Davis, John Wall, and DeMarcus Cousins, are some of the most recognized players in the league. It also means that UK students get to see NBA-level games right on campus at discounted student prices and experience a one-of-a-kind school spirit!
We realize that this is an uncertain time for many of you; schools have shut down in-person classes, methods of instruction have shifted to online, and plans have been disrupted. We are determined to keep all of our current and prospective students up-to-date on any information that will inform college application and admissions decisions. Because many students currently face extended visa wait times, travel restrictions, and/or financial hardship, we have taken several measures designed to ease their path to enrollment. First, we have extended the admitted student confirmation date to June 1. Moreover, all applicants admitted to the University of Kentucky for the Fall 2020 semester will be able to defer their admission and scholarships to the Spring 2021 or Fall 2021 semester.
From academics to career opportunities to campus life, students at the University of Kentucky will receive a world-class education and university experience in a safe environment and develop academically, professionally, and personally in ways that will benefit them for a lifetime.
