International Opportunities

Return to: International Student Support  

At Walden University, we believe that online education opens the door for learners to study anywhere and at any time.

The following are some examples of Walden’s internationalization initiatives:

  • Study abroad—As part of their course of study, students in various programs have the option of traveling overseas for 1 week to learn and study. Immersed in the culture, students may more fully embrace the comprehensive nature of their program of study and future career field.
  • Dual Degree—Students from select Laureate partner institutions have the opportunity to obtain a degree from their home university as well as a degree from Walden University.
  • International residencies—Some degrees require residencies of 1 or 2 weeks. Walden holds international residencies on certain dates. During residencies, international students have the opportunity to meet in person with fellow students as well as faculty members, share academic ideas, and even form friendships. Activities include a welcome dinner and networking events.
  • Guest speakers—Walden invites speakers with international experience to share their insights with students via webcasts as well as during residencies.
