Students and Studies
Today, more than 16,000 students are enrolled in programmes at the Californian university. The faculty is made up of 2,180 academic staff members (2018). Stanford is known to be one of the top fundraising institutions in the country – it became the first school to raise more than a billion dollars in a year. This notion and its excellent courses are two of the things that attract students from near and far. The school has a terrific reputation, notable alumni are 30 living billionaires, 17 astronauts, and 20 Turing Awards laureates, as well as members of the United States Congress, 67 Nobel laureates, and 7 Fields Medallists.
The university has three traditional schools, which consist of 40 academic departments at undergraduate and graduate level, and four professional schools with special focus on the fields of Law, Medicine, Education, and Business.
The school has 81 student residences, in which over 11,000 students are living. Stanford University’s undergraduate programme is one of the top three most selective in the United States. Admission into the programme is competitive as many students want to attend courses at this elite university. Stanford graduates are already well-rounded professionals with the necessary skills and tools and knowledge to succeed in their chosen careers. The school is therefore popular among candidates. Due to its international students, the learning environment is multicultural and gives students the opportunity to learn valuable insights when it comes to multinational communications. Students are also encouraged to become part of one of the many organised student groups that are operating on campus – something every future employer will definitely appreciate.

Stanford makes its students believe that anything and everything is possible! From the first year at this school, you can be involved in any aspects of student life you are passionate about!
