UA Micro-Campuses an Innovative Approach to International Education, Says Wonkhe

The University of Arizona's 'micro-campus model' is an innovative approach to international education, according to a recent article by Wonkhe.

Two years ago, the UA created its first 'micro-campus' in Qingdao, China at Ocean University to provide international students with seamless access to a world-class UA education and the ability to earn dual degrees from their local institution and the UA. 

Since then, the UA has added another micro-campus in Cambodia at the American University of Phnom Penh, and recently announced plans to create 11 more micro-campuses around the globe. 

Over the next three years, the UA plans to open more than 25 micro-campuses at international partner universities, creating a global network that is capable of educating more than 25,000 students around the globe.

Micro-campuses address global demand for higher education, opening doors for students unable to study in the United States, while providing a synergistic hub for other forms of internationalization including faculty collaborations in research, student intercultural learning, interdisciplinary community engagement, and more. 

At the while, establishing one of the world’s most affordable, accessible, and expansive global networks for higher education and collaborative research.
