International Students

We encourage international students to apply to the PA program, especially in light of the recent globalization of the profession.  Please visit the International Students and Scholars Office for more information about the BU policies and procedures related to international students. All international students who wish to have their previous educational endeavors outside of the US, Canada and the United Kingdom counted towards the admission prerequisites must have their academic record reviewed and verified by the World Educational Services (WES) transcript service. Prerequisite course requirements for international applicants are the same as all applicants.

For those whose first language is not English and who did not complete 4 years of undergraduate education in the United States, Canada or the United Kingdom, English language fluency examinations are also required.  Please see the TOEFL website for more details. Minimum scores for the TOEFL exam are:  26 (reading), 26 (listening), 26 (speaking), and 28 (writing).
