International Students

Welcome. Bienvenue. Willkommen. Benvenuto. Recepcin.

Pitt-Bradford is a regional campus of the University of Pittsburgh, a public research university serving Pennsylvania as well as the world. We have a diverse community of students, faculty, and staff and have students from many different countries, backgrounds and experiences.

Some students come to our campus and stay for all four years because they prefer smaller classes and feel comfortable being a part of our diverse, inclusive and welcoming campus community. As Pitt-Bradford students, they also have access to the vast resources of the University of Pittsburgh.

Others spend their first two years on our campus and transfer to another Pitt campus for their remaining two years. The vast majority of our majors can be completed this way.

Regardless of campus location, all degrees are conferred by the University of Pittsburgh, which is recognized by the Chinese Ministry of Education. All diplomas are signed by the university’s chancellor, provost and chairman of the Board of Directors.
