Guided by its bold Eyes High vision, the University of Calgary is poised to become a global intellectual hub, supported by its comprehensive internationalization strategy that aims to increase the diversity of students on campus, advance educational and research partnerships and boost international development efforts.

Increasing the international diversity of our student body prepares our students to be successful in today’s global marketplace. Top research universities attract the best students from around the world and our International Strategy sets a target of 10% of the undergraduate population and 25% of the graduate population to be international within the next few years.
