In addition to being a “best college value” and producing some of the world’s most employable graduates, The University of Texas at Austin provides extensive on-campus opportunities—and real-world connections—that add value to your degree.
We’re committed to providing undergraduates with opportunities for hands-on research
, and offerings like our Freshman Research Initiative
and Bridging Disciplines Program
We prioritize undergraduate research and other hands-on learning because it’s so valuable in helping students explore their options—and in opening doors, both to graduate programs and professional opportunities.
The benefits of your degree don’t end once you leave campus—you're joining a network of 500,000 Longhorns.
Graduates of UT Austin know that relationships matter, and that a handshake is worth something. The Texas Exes
form a network of alumni, from Neil deGrasse Tyson to Matthew McConaughey, whose helping hands span the globe.
So whether you’re in Taipei or Monterrey, you’re never too far from home.
