The Office of International Education (OIE) supports international students from the time they first show interest in UVM through some of their student-based work authorizations after graduation. We work with students who hold various immigration statuses, as well as US citizens who grew up abroad who wish to be part of the UVM international community. Our work includes immigration advising, student support as they get to know Burlington and UVM, orientation, social and educational programs, and being a resource for students when they don’t know where to find the information elsewhere on campus.
UVM is home to international students from over 60 countries. Within our population we have multiple student types. These include degree-seeking undergraduate andgraduate students, exchange students who study abroad at UVM through one of our exchange partnerships, and visiting graduate students who undertake short-term research with individual faculty.
