UF International Education Week

30


Every year, UF celebrates International Education Week on Campus https://internationalcenter.ufl.edu/home/about-ufic/international-education-week. International students contribute to our global and cultural competencies required to successfully join the professional/research workforce in today’s global society.

During the academic year of 2020-2021, our CVM graduate student population on campus was 54 (including 22 MS students and 32 PhD students). We are fortunate to have a diverse study body with noted diversity in both our US and international students, with the latter represented from 11 countries (Brazil, China, Egypt, India, Japan, Mexico, Nigeria, Paraguay, Taiwan, Thailand, Uruguay).
