International Students

International students must have studied for at least one year at an accredited college or university in the United States, Canada, or the United Kingdom prior to applying for admission.

International students are considered for admission to Stanford University School of Medicine without regard to their country of origin. Prior to certification of an I-20 document, an international student must prove sufficient funds to meet all expenses while studying in the United States. Without written evidence of having financial support for the entire time needed to complete the degree program, an international student will not be granted a student visa. Further information may be obtained from the Stanford University School of Medicine Office of Medical School Admissions.

Student Visas

In order to register as students, Stanford University requires that all those who are not U.S. citizens or U.S. registered permanent residents must obtain and maintain an appropriate visa status for their stay in the U.S. For more information, please refer to the current section of the Stanford Bulletin on visas.
