International Student Services

Hello and thank you for your interest in Rhodes College!
The Buckman Center for International Education looks forward to working with you to make your stay at Rhodes one of the most productive and fulfilling experiences of your academic career.  Currently, Rhodes College is home to 68 international students from 19 different countries (not including the U.S.) including the UK, Pakistan, India, China, Greece, Romania, Botswana, Japan, Germany, Russia, France, Morocco, Vietnam, Mexico, Korea, Ethiopia, and Turkmenistan.
If you choose to begin your education at Rhodes in the fall semester you will have the option to participate in our international student orientation. This orientation takes place several days before all other students arrive on campus, giving you the opportunity to arrive and arrange your things in your room and get adjusted to campus whereabouts before the rush of students!  Additionally, during this time you will have the opportunity to participate in informational sessions about campus life and services, shopping trips to gather necessary things and fun excursions around Memphis with other new international students!

Rhodes College also offers free ESL (English as a Second Language) tutors who can make appointments accommodating your schedule regarding common ESL issues in both written and spoken English.
