Enter a university abroad

Bachelor degree at CU

Applicants will need a subject exam — ACT or SAT.

Master's degree at CU

The academic performance of a student in an undergraduate program plays an important role in the selection of candidates. It is impossible to enter CU for a master's program without confirming knowledge of the English language. You can do this by passing IELTS, PTE or TOEFL. There is an opportunity for admission to online master's programs at CU.

CU campus

The campus of the educational institution is located in New York City. This opens up all the delights of life in a big city for students: a rich infrastructure, a large selection of entertainment, convenient transport, as well as more opportunities for internships or part-time jobs. However, for some students, such an abundance of opportunities can be distracting. The university has a functioning library. In addition to educational materials in various scientific areas, it contains a collection of classical and contemporary literature. CU accepts students for international exchange programs. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in intercultural communication for both international and local students.
