International Graduate Students

Office of International Services (OIS)

OIS assists Hopkins’ international community with visa status and with the challenges of making a transition from one setting to another.

The OIS staff are prepared to help with daily issues students face in adapting to an academically and culturally different environment. This office should be considered by international students as their primary source for important information regarding their status in the United States.

OIS staff members can answer questions and advise students on immigration regulations, financial concerns, health matters, housing, employment possibilities and other issues relating to an international student’s period of stay in the U.S.

ISAH: International Students @ Hopkins

Ambassador Program

The application to serve as an ISAH Ambassador is open to all undergraduate international students, graduate international students, international postdocs, and globally-conscious domestic students. Between 20-25 international student leaders will be selected from across all campuses to assist with key pillars of the international student experience: orientation, administration, socials, and international education.

International Bridge Program

Studying in a foreign country can be both challenging and exciting. International students often experience a period of cultural adjustment when they first arrive to the United States and specifically Johns Hopkins University.

The International Student Bridge Program is designed to better support this transition process for new international graduate students through monthly informational seminars and presentations on practical subjects- such as adjusting to graduate school in the US, taxes, credit in the United States, career preparations and enhancing communication and networking skills.
