Why Study at UCF
Students from around the world choose the University of Central Florida. Here are just some of the reasons why you’ll love UCF too.
More than just theme parks
While sunny Orlando is famous for its many amusement parks, it’s also home to the second largest university in the United States, so you can get a great education and have fun at the same time.
Innovative and research-focused
UCF is committed to research and innovation. UCF received $183 million in research funding in 2018.
Diversity, excitement and more
From making friends to enjoying cultural experiences, there’s always something fun happening on campus or nearby.
I chose UCF because of their engineering program. I'm interested in going into research and UCF has many research projects going on—not just for graduate students, but for undergraduate students too. That's not very common at other universities.”
