Information for United Kingdom students
Welcome to Western Oregon University. We are proud of our past and excited about our future. Western Oregon University (WOU) was established in 1856, three years before Oregon became the 33rd state in United States of America. Just as WOU set the example of higher education in Oregon in the 19th century, the university is leading the way in the 21st century.
The world has become interconnected and interdependent in nearly every imaginable manner. A roundtrip from London to Portland, Oregon can cost as low as £400. Business, politics, entertainment, the environment and education are now global activities. Students will need to be prepared to interact and succeed in this highly dynamic and multinational environment and a degree from WOU will help prepare you for a successful future.
WOU offers over 40 academic programmes each with a strong focus on student learning and preparation for career success. Our campus facilities are a purposeful blend of established building which are continually upgraded for the latest instructional technology and state-of-the-art buildings, such as our newest, most energy efficient and environmentally sustainable residence hall, (Ackerman Hall), and a brand new campus health and wellness center.

WOU is located in the small community of Monmouth. This incredibly safe and scenic location is less than one hour from the Oregon coast and two hours from the mountains. The state capital, Salem, is located 20 minutes to the east. Portland, home of Nike and Oregon’s many high technology corporations, is 75 minutes north of campus.
WOU is recognized as a leader in international education. Nearly six percent of our student body is comprised of students from other nations. Our Office of International Students and Scholars is the headquarters for all services aimed specifically for international students.
We are confident that you will find WOU to be an outstanding opportunity to develop skills and insights that will prepare you for a successful career in the global community of the 21st century. Please contact us to see how we can support your entry and success at WOU.
