University profile Founded in 1861, the University of Washington is one of the oldest state-supported institutions of higher education on the West Coast and is one of the preeminent research universities in the world. The UW educates a diverse student body of approximately 40,000 to become responsible global citizens and future leaders through a challenging learning environment. We have 70 academic departments offering a diverse range of courses taught by top faculty members in their fields. There are 550 different student organizations within the student body ranging from musical and dance groups to cultural, religious and sports clubs. No matter what your interest, the University of Washington can offer you a positive experience both academically and personally.
Undergraduate programs open to exchange students Undergraduates via a university-wide exchange will be admitted to the UW through the College of Arts & Sciences regardless of major in their home country. The college is divided by four academic divisions: art, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences.
Undergraduate programs NOT open to exchange students Please know that Communications, Economics, Psychology, and Law, Societies & Justice courses in particular are extremely competitive so students should plan to take courses outside of these areas. If a course attracts more students than there are places, students enrolled in the UW degree program will be given priority above other students, including exchange students.
If students hope to take courses outside of the College of Arts & Sciences then they do so at their own risk. Many departments have their own departmental exchanges and therefore cannot accommodate students from university-wide partners since priority is given to their own exchange students. We cannot guarantee any courses for exchange students so we ask that students be very flexible with their course selections. Professional programs including those offered by the Information School, School of Medicine, School of Nursing, and School of Pharmacy, as well as any fee based programs are not available to exchange students.
