What is INTO UAB?

INTO UAB is an initiative to increase the global diversity of our student body and provide opportunities for faculty to expand international teaching, research and service activities. Since opening in 2016, INTO UAB has welcomed over 600 new students from 84 countries and has grown the Blazer alumni network around the world.

INTO UAB provides English language training and pathway programs for international students who may not meet the requirements for direct entry. Upon successful completion of a pathway program, students gain full admission into one of UAB’s undergraduate or graduate programs to complete their studies. Last school year, 96.7% of eligible pathway students progressed into a degree program and more than 200 former pathway students have graduated with UAB degrees.
