Last month, Texas Tech University was ranked in the top 10 percent of schools for international students. The ranking was based on a number of factors, including graduation rates, ESL programs, and the availability of grants and financial aid to international students.
Texas Tech scored high in all areas, and remains not only one of the best schools for international students, but one of the best schools in the world. According to an article on their website “Earlier this year, the university moved up to No. 437 in the Center for World University Rankings, an increase of 63 positions over the previous year. The ranking places the university among the top two and a half percent of the world’s universities.”
According to Texas Tech President Lawrence Schovanec, who said in the same article, “societies around the world are increasingly becoming internationally diverse every day. It is important that we develop the global competencies of our students through their educational experiences at Texas Tech to prepare them for the future. Our international student population, along with the entire student body, plays an important role in our rising stature internationally.”
