Services for International Students and Scholars

Welcome International Students and Scholars

Northeastern University hosts over 10,500 international students and scholars from 140 different nations across the world.

The Office of Global Services (OGS) is an active resource for Northeastern University’s community of international students, scholars, and their families. We provide professional expertise and support from the time of admission to after graduation.  Our staff’s commitment ensures that our community maintains compliance through their immigration, academic, and employment experiences.

The OGS collaborates with students, scholars, and other offices at Northeastern to enhance the international character of the university. We help our community build connections and share their values and stories across the university and throughout Boston. We hope you always feel comfortable at the OGS and find a new home at Northeastern.

Info & Events

Every semester the OGS runs events on campus and throughout the greater Boston area. These are typically open to all students, domestic and international alike. Check out what is coming up here.
