International Year One in General

Overview

The International Year One leads to a wide range of undergraduate degrees at the University.

Key information

This is a 2-semester program that will be tailored to prepare you for your chosen undergraduate degree. This program eases the transition to US undergraduate study by combining credit-bearing courses from the first year of your degree with additional support services, instruction tailored to your academic and language level, and cultural experiences, helping ensure your future success.

  • Utah's top-ranked programs and credentials are recognized around the globe, contributing to a 97% alumni job placement rate: It's the #1 public university for game design worldwide, a top-60 world university, and a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU).
    -Utah's School of Business graduates report a sky-high 95% job placement rate, partially thanks to Salt Lake City's booming tech scene, nicknamed “Silicon Slopes”: Students can take part in the university's top-10 entrepreneurship program, be mentored (and secure funding) for their startup idea at the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute, and go on to become world changers.
  • For international students who love nature and the outdoors, it's hard to find a better place to study than the University of Utah: There are five national parks nearby, Olympic-level skiing, and only-in-Utah hiking and mountain sports.
