Universities Home to the Highest Percentage of International Students in the World

Hanging out with friends from Korea University in Seoul, South Korea

I have written several articles about studying abroad and getting the most bang for your buck (scholarships). Another way to add value to your academic career is enrolling into a university abroad. For many first time travelers, this might be a big leap.

In my article about attending a foreign institution, I mentioned that one way to get an authentic experience is applying directly to a university abroad.  This will probably be one of the most challenging and rewarding applications of your life.

To make this process more bearable I strongly encourage you to apply to universities with a large international population. Universities with a significant international population have systems and procedures in place to streamline the process.

The following are recommendations of universities to consider with a significant international student body. You can check out the full list at the Times of Higher Education.
