San Francisco State University is a public university with nationally acclaimed degrees spanning many disciplines. Ideally located in the heart of San Francisco, SF State welcomes more than 27,000 students each year to a rigorous academic education that prepares them for their future as thriving global citizens.

With the most diverse student body of America’s 100 largest universities*, SF State is a particularly welcoming place for international students, who come to study at the university from more than 100 countries each year. Through them — and more than 1,800 world-class faculty members — SF State proudly embraces its legacy of academic excellence, community engagement and commitment to social justice.

The International Year One University Pathway Program is a new way for overseas students to begin studying for a degree at SF State. It allows students to take a range of first-year academic credit classes while also receiving specialised instruction to improve their English language skills. The vast range of credited SF State courses on offer allows students to both discover new fields and further explore already strong subjects.

At the same time, students become part of a highly supportive international community, with dedicated staff to help them adjust to their new lives at a US university. Upon successful completion of International Year One, students will matriculate into the remainder of their degree with SF State.
