International Students

Edinboro University welcomes students from all over the world, many of whom are interested in gaining work experience during their studies in the U.S. We provide several resources to help international students on their professional journey.

How We Support International Students

We understand that international students navigate many transitions when studying in the United States, and understanding U.S. academic and work culture is just one of many new things to learn. We are here to be a resource in helping international students understand and navigate available career and experiential learning opportunities, and we provide access to internships and jobs that accept OPT, CPT, and H1-B visa holders through Handshake.
