Program Description

Best of Both Worlds

Pittsburgh – a big city with small-town safety, charm, and hospitality – is frequently voted one of the most livable cities in the United States. Diverse and cosmopolitan, Pittsburgh has about 320,000 residents, including over 7,000 international students studying at its universities.

Like to attend major sporting events?
Visit a world-class zoo or amusement park? Chatham University is in a great location, offering students the comforts of a peaceful campus with access to a vibrant city and activities within minutes.

In Pittsburgh, you’ll find a wide range of cultural offerings, such as the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, art museums (including the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Andy Warhol Museum), and many shopping opportunities. The beautiful 640-acre Frick Park is a 15-minute walk from campus and has many trails for hiking and mountain biking. You can explore exciting caves, take hikes in pristine landscapes, and go camping and white water rafting in one of the many nearby state parks. Chatham is a short ride from the Pittsburgh International Airport, which has easy connections to other major U.S. cities and international destinations. All Chatham students receive bus passes that permit easy access to the amenities of the city.

Many of Chatham’s campus buildings (including residence halls) are historic mansions in the upscale Pittsburgh neighborhoods of Shadyside and Squirrel Hill. These small, friendly neighborhoods are located just minutes from the arts and commerce of Pittsburgh.

How to Apply

You must be a current student from Kobe College or Kyoto Women's University. To apply, you must meet the academic requirements of your home institution.

Interested students should submit the following:

• Completed Application

At this time it is expected that classes will be held fully in-person for Fall 2021. Final determinations will be made in Spring 2021.

Semester Application Deadline

Interested students should apply as early as possible to have enough time to get a student visa.


Students are encourage to live on-campus. Students might live in one of our renovated historical mansions, or in residence halls that look like apartments.

If students elect to stay in a homestay, they must make the arrangements with GlobalPittsburgh and pay the fees directly to GlobalPittsburgh, themselves.
