Education is All About Crossing Boundaries.
Every year, Wilkes University becomes the home for students hailing from all over the world. Students from India, Ireland, China and Brazil, to name a few, have all chosen Wilkes University. They chose it not only for its exceptional academic offering, but also for its small, intimate classes taught by a dedicated, hands-on faculty who know the needs of international students. Wilkes University is located in a safe and friendly community (Wilkes-Barre has one of the lowest crime rates of any U.S. metropolitan area)—surrounded by some of the most serene woodlands and mountain ranges in the northeastern U.S. And with major cities such as New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., just a few hours drive away, Wilkes' location allows you to make the most of your time in the United States.
