Why study at Indiana University Bloomington

Indiana University Bloomington, also known as "IUB" or just "IU," offers students from all over the world the quintessential American college experience. With over 43,000 students, IU is one of the largest universities in the US, but it has a small-school feel. This means you'll have access to state-of-the-art facilities for research, creativity, and sports, and learn from world-class instructors, but you'll also find yourself in small classes with opportunities to really connect with your classmates and professors. While there are certainly large lecture-style classes as well, our average class size is 30, and most of our class sections have 20 students or less.

IU is also a very diverse place - we're a second home to over 5,000 international students from 144 countries, and 37% of our faculty have an international background.

IU offers over 200 undergraduate majors, including some that are the first of their kind in the US, such as the BS in Intelligent Systems Engineering, and the BS in Cybersecurity and Global Policy. With twenty degree programs ranked among the top ten on national and global indexes, Indiana University is particularly known for its Kelley School of Business; Jacobs School of Music;School of Informatics, Computing, & Engineering; School of Media (film and journalism);and School of Public and Environmental Affairs.
