For students around the world who can’t come to the University of Arizona, the university is now coming to them — and not just online.

UArizona on Monday announced the launch of its Global Campus, which expands many of the university’s programs to 34 countries through partnerships with other international universities and with global student accommodations provider GSA.

The new initiative allows students who cannot make it to UArizona’s main campus in Tucson because of Covid-19 travel restrictions, financial limitations or other reasons to pursue programs with UArizona instructors at Global Campus locations, via online courses or through a combination of the two.
