Welcome to our Graduate Admissions international student page. Hofstra University has a long tradition of welcoming international students to our campus, and we currently enroll international students from more than 65 different countries.
Located on Long Island, New York, students enjoy easy access to the cultural center of the world - New York City. In addition, they benefit from the wide array of internship opportunities in New York City and take advantage of the museums, Broadway shows, concerts, and restaurants. Hofstra's suburban campus is easily accessible, near two major airports (John F. Kennedy International Airport and LaGuardia Airport), along with abundant public transportation and Hofstra's own "Blue Beetle" shuttle.
International students attending Hofstra enjoy all the benefits of the American system of higher education at a safe, selective, and private campus that values diversity and promotes cross-cultural understanding. Our international students find it easy to develop a sense of community, school spirit and a feeling of belonging.
Hofstra offers special services and resources through our Office of International Students, Asia Center, and many international student organizations. As a Hofstra University student, you will be a member of a diverse community of students and scholars. We invite you to learn more about the possibilities and opportunities that await you at Hofstra University. In addition to all these attractive features, we believe that ultimately it is the people who make Hofstra a special place to live and study. We hope that you, too, will choose to apply to Hofstra and join our graduate community.
