CWRU's global advantage

In recent years, Case Western Reserve University has emerged as one of the nation’s most recognized universities for comprehensive internationalization. In January, the university’s efforts were given further recognition as it received the prestigious Andrew Heiskell Award for Innovation in International Education, which said internationalization is "embedded throughout the university’s thought and curriculum."

For undergraduates, an international campus has several specific benefits. 

Expanding perspectives

Fifteen percent of CWRU's incoming undergraduate students are international, adding a broad array of perspectives and experiences to our classrooms, student organizations, residence halls and sports fields.

Opportunities in research

Additionally, CWRU has partnerships with numerous universities abroad for research, giving students a chance to engage in fieldwork and creative opportunities across the world.‚Äč

Education and career

What's more, 45 percent of CWRU students study abroad, earning the university the No. 20-spot among doctorate-granting universities for the percentage of undergraduates who study abroad. Nationally, surveys show 90 percent of study abroad participants are accepted to their first or second-choice graduate or professional school program; 97 percent secure a job within a year of graduating, and they earn an average of $7,000 more than peers who didn’t study abroad.
