Office of International Studies

The Office of International Studies (OIS) at Villanova University provides the Villanova community with the opportunity to experience the world beyond the borders of our campus and country. As an academic office, our focus is on student learning, and our goal is to provide programming that will allow students to become immersed in their host culture.
