International Outreach:

New York City’s population is truly a microcosm of the globe. International students, no matter where they come from, can find a slice of their home culture somewhere in the streets and neighborhoods of NYC’s five boroughs. In this way, New York is unlike any other city in the world. 

SVA is committed to maintaining a global perspective and community. In the 2018 -2019 academic year, more than 1,900 students from over 63 countries studied at the College. To accommodate and serve SVA’s growing and diverse international population, the International Outreach Office, a subset of SVA Admissions, was created in 2013. 

The International Outreach Office consists of artists and administrators who travel the world to build relationships with students, teachers, parents and professionals, visiting high schools, colleges, partner schools, art and design fairs, exhibitions and industry events. Team members discuss SVA’s offerings and new trends in art and design, and often conduct portfolio reviews with prospective undergraduate applicants.  

International applicants have the opportunity to meet an SVA representative in person in their home country.   Applicants receive one-on-one attention throughout the application process.
