Contact: Dr. Dmitry Sherbakov, Associate Director of International Student Recruitment
City University of Seattle (CityU) is a not-for-profit university accredited by the Northwest Commission of Colleges and Universities.
The university specializes in undergraduate and graduate programs designed for the needs of the US and international community: About 80% of the faculty members teaching at the university come from the business world and students are offered the opportunity to get internships in local companies during their studies. One of CityU’s core missions is to provide global access to high quality educational programs, so the university's programs are reasonably priced and no standardized tests (SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT) are required for admission. International students must meet English language proficiency requirements, but for many academic programs the university offers conditional admittance and the opportunity to improve English language skills within its own ESL program.
The City University of Seattle main campus is located in the thriving area of downtown Seattle. This location is on the edge of Belltown, South Lake Union, and at the foot of Queen Anne Hill. The CityU campus is located near the headquarters of the Gates Foundation and Amazon.com, and is near popular Seattle attractions such as the Experience Music Project and the Space Needle. CityU’s new urban learning campus allows students to attend classes in modern, interactive, and innovative learning spaces. CityU’s campus is easily accessible by public transportation from any part of the greater Seattle area, is also located in close proximity to the city’s major attractions and vibrant businesses, and provides for a great urban lifestyle for international and domestic students.
