Visiting international undergraduate students
Our program for undergraduate international students is mostly observational. From the end of August through April,
we welcome small groups of students to observe courses in our Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program, including the chance to watch our clinical coursework.
Visiting international graduate students
As part of our effort to foster nursing education around the world, we offer international graduate students a non-matriculating visiting scholar option that is custom-designed for each student.
Acceptance requires a very strong match between the research goals of the applicant and those of the faculty member who will support the student’s work. If you are accepted, you will need to complete at least one year of doctoral education at your home institution before coming to Penn for a year. During your stay, you will develop a research proposal to complete before returning to your degree program.
While here, you will have a faculty mentor, an office space and computer, library privileges, and a University of Pennsylvania email address.
We welcome our colleagues from abroad to visit us here at Penn Nursing. Those interested in coming to see us for up to a day or two should email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do not offer University accommodations for the students, however, below are a few links to accommodations in the area:
