International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. Students are invited to immerse themselves in global issues, raise their awareness of international cultures, and discover what international opportunities await them on campus during Brigham Young University’s celebration of International Education Week.
Nationally established in 2000 and first celebrated at BYU in 2002, International Education Week promotes programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.
Join the international exchange!
