International Students

InternationalAt the University of Hartford, we pride ourselves on being an international university that is large enough to include students from the United States and more than 60 other countries around the world. Yet we are small enough to provide individual attention to all our students. Encouraging international graduate education and understanding is an important part of our mission as a university. It is also a major part of our role as a leading American university.
