Welcome to ISI

Northwestern University brings students and scholars from around the world to engage in research, graduate studies and intellectual exchange. For over ten years, The International Summer Institute has eased the transition to life at Northwestern for international graduate students.

Our mission is to provide linguistic, emotional, academic and practical support to entering Northwestern Ph.D. students through intensive instruction in English, opportunities to socialize outside the classroom, and practical advice on integrating into an American university and the local culture.
