Visiting Students and Scholars

Visiting Students and Scholars

As a top-tier Catholic research university engaged deeply with the international academic community, the University of Dayton welcomes many international visitors each year. While the Office of International Student and Scholar Services most often works with traditional degree-seeking students, we also offer our expertise in support of faculty, students and scholars wishing to participate in international academic exchange.

Please see the opportunities below and explore how you can engage in global learning and teaching, through hosting or participating as a visiting scholar or student. 

Visiting Scholars

Are you interested in inviting an international scholar for a collaborative academic experience? Since 2003, University of Dayton faculty members have hosted over 200 international scholars to conduct research, teach, and exchange ideas, in diverse fields of study across the institution.

These visiting professors, specialists and graduate students from around the world enrich the life of our campus, bringing new perspectives on teaching and research and engaging in cultural exchange. In addition, through these relationships, faculty members can explore the potential for larger partnerships between UD and educational institutions abroad.

To learn more about eligibility and the application process, visit our Inviting a Scholar page.

Exchange Students from Partner Institutions

The University of Dayton partners with many institutions of higher education around the world for education abroad, research collaborations, and more. International students from these partner institutions have the opportunity to study at the University of Dayton for a short-term exchange that will fulfill the educational objectives of the student’s degree program in the home country.
