The ideal Tufts graduate student is a thoughtful, inquisitive, critical thinking individual, who cares about how their career paths and their education align with the social needs of the world. And so for the ideal graduate student, we're looking for someone that's interested in research, but also really excited about learning and being a part of our Tufts community. And we're looking not only at merit, but we're looking at the student holistically, and really trying to make sure that they've aligned with our vision and mission as a graduate student. And so whether you're just looking or if you've already applied, please reach out to the Office of Graduate Admissions so that we can be a supportive office for you during your application process.

We have a community of students, staff, and faculty who have come together, have worked really hard to be thoughtful about each other's experience, identities, backgrounds. And we as a community continue to push ourselves as we understand that we want to do better every day with every student.

When I get to go meet people from English or History, or Chemical Engineering, it gives me the opportunity to see very different perspectives. So it makes me honestly more productive as a graduate student, and also just happier because I have a great community that has these really diverse experiences.

Tufts a place international students can feel very comfortable in because the demographics of the student body is quite indicative of the diversity that exists. You get the sense that they care more about your welfare first, and then they delve deep into the academic stuff. And that gives you that gives you this feeling that you have people you can always talk to and fall back on.
