International Education and Programs

Welcome to the Office of International Education and Programs


Thank you for your interest in our programs. The faculty and staff at the International Center welcome you to our community. We serve as a liaison with other academic units, departments, and service programs in an effort to promote interaction between international students and the university and local communities.

Our office is responsible for organizing and providing educational and social programs as well as coordinating campus and community services available to international students and faculty. We offer a wide array of outstanding degree programs, affordable Intensive English classes, conversation language classes, cross-cultural social activities, and more.

We also administer International Study Abroad for currently-enrolled UWF students, providing information, and/or offering limited financial support (e.g. Travel Grants). Students may choose from a wide array of study abroad program options.

We believe that you will enjoy your academic experience at the University as it is located on a lush 1,600 acre wildlife refuge in Pensacola, Florida. It is only 15 minutes from historic downtown Pensacola and 25 minutes from the pearly white sands of Pensacola Beach.
