Thinking about studying at KU?
Thousands of international students come to the U.S to study here.
Here is why you should join them, as an Academic Accelerator student.
“When I was trying to decide where I wanted to study in the United States, the first thing that made me want to come to the middle of the United States was the university. I felt really welcomed which is basically what made me what to come to the Midwest and I can assure you that everyone here will make you feel like part of the community.”
“The advisors have been a big help to me throughout my first year here in KU. They would simplify answers to any questions that I have, even researching it on their own if they don’t know the answers. They would also give useful information, and aside from that, are comfortable to have a chat too as well.”
“My favorite thing here at KU is my American roommate Kennedy, from Michigan... She introduced me to all her friends on our floor, so sometimes people will come talk to me just because Kennedy has told them good things about me.”
"I choose KU because I was looking for a big school that has a variety of classes, clubs, activities and sports. I also wanted to go somewhere where I could have a social life outside of the classroom. Also, the KU International program got my attention because I want to continue to improve my English skills."
“The events should not be missed, especially the basketball games. I have made good friends with some AAP students, roommates and classmates. I am currently not in a student organization but I am looking into joining some medical organizations because it will help me build a connection with experts in that field and also make more friends I can bond with.“
“I want to join KU’s Jayhawk Motorsports, which is a student organization that builds go-carts for Formula One. I’ve talked to people in the organization and they tell me it gives you really practical engineering skills that will complement my studies. In Mechanical Engineering, 70% of the learning is practical knowledge and the other 30% is textbook knowledge.”
