International Students Process​​

We welcome International Students! Our student body is diverse and comprised of students from all over the world. At Richmond Gabriel University, diversity is important is creating an international community where our students from all ethnicities, culture and geographical region come together with one common goal: receiving quality education and international experience to better serve a global nation.

Language Competency

Our curriculum is taught in the English language practical and clinical clerkships are all done at teaching sites where English is the primary language. A TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) examination score may be required from applicants from countries where English is not an official language if the applicant is unable to demonstrate proficiency in English during the Interview and Application process.


International students follow the same fee structure as the US and Canadian citizens. Upon completion of the Basic Science component, students are assisted with their visa processing for entry into the US or other countries for their clinical rotations.
