National University is the second-largest, private, nonprofit institution of higher learning in California. Founded in 1971, National University has more than 28,000 students from over 70 countries and offers more than 100 undergraduate and graduate degree programs plus an intensive English language program. National University is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. National University offers a dynamic balance of theory and practice and maintains high academic standards. Here are some of the great features that distinguish National University from other universities:

• Great locations. The degree programs for international students are currently offered in two world-class cities, San Diego and Los Angeles, famous for their beautiful weather, wide range of tourist attractions and their leading role in the fields of business and technology.

• Affordability. Tuition rates are approximately 59 percent lower than the average private institution.

• Unique course format. With our unique one-subject-per month format, you can complete up to 12 courses a year.

• Multiple intakes. We have multiple intakes during the year instead of the traditional one or two intakes at other institutions.

• Small class sizes. All programs feature small classes (averaging 20 per class) and instructors familiar with current industry standards.

• Outstanding student services. The International Student Office provides assistance in airport pickup, housing, student counseling and all of your immigration needs. Our Student Concierge Services are available around the clock to answer your questions via phone, e-mail, or web form. Our international student service advisor speaks multiple languages including Spanish, Korean, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, Hindi, and Portuguese.
