School Information
"Since 1791, the University of Vermont has worked to move humankind forward. Today, UVM is a Public Ivy and top research university of a perfect size, large enough to offer a breadth of ideas, resources, and opportunities, yet small enough to enable close faculty-student mentorship across all levels of study, from bachelor’s to M.D. programs. Here, students’ educational experience and activities are enriched by our location — from the energy and innovation of Burlington to the forests, farms, and independent spirit of Vermont." The university offers over 100 bachelor degree programs, 61 master's degree programs, and 27 doctoral programs, enrolls over 12,700 students, and has a student-faculty ratio of 16:1.
