Our Forest is populated by more than 100 species of trees and more than 100 species of birds. More importantly, it is infused, invigorated, and enhanced by the experiences, scholarship, and cultural traditions of an entire planet.
One of every 10 Wake Forest undergraduates in 2021-22 came to the University from another country, but that’s only part of this global story.
The other is in the students — regardless of their points of origin — who take the leap to learn abroad and bring their knowledge back to their main academic home. In all, 66% of the Class of 2020 received academic credit for foreign study. That’s the third-highest figure among national universities in U.S. News & World Report’s September 2021 rankings.
Ours is the only Top 30 national university to own three academic-residential houses in other countries. Between them, Worrell House in London, Flow House in Vienna, and Casa Artom in Venice have been home to more than 3,000 Wake Foresters over the years.
It’s also important to note that our commitment to international education flows both ways. Wake Forest provides international students with a yearlong transitional experience rooted in written and spoken communication.
