Study in the U.S.

An American Education for International Students

At the University’s Main Campus, located in the heart of Columbus, Ohio, the 14th largest city in the United States, you’ll learn with -- and from -- classmates who, as working adults, share their professional, real-world work experiences as part of your classroom experience.
