Visit Campus

Ph.D. Pre-VU Recruitment Event          

VU-EDGE will host a graduate recruitment event at Vanderbilt University in Fall 2017. We will provide round-trip travel for each student to Nashville. Participants will share a double room, and all meals will be provided during the event. The application will be available Summer 2017 and the deadline to apply is early September 2017. More details will be provided late Spring 2017.

Summer Research Programs

Vanderbilt annually offers more than 60 undergraduate students an opportunity to visit campus as summer research scholars. These students usually spend 8-10 weeks doing research with our faculty or with advanced graduate students. 

Prospective Applicants

We encourage you to visit Vanderbilt’s campus and the department you’re interested in. During your visit, you can talk with faculty, staff members, and students; learn more about the College’s expectations and offerings; and determine whether the College fits your needs and interests. To arrange a visit, we suggest you schedule an appointment with the department to which you are applying. 

Admitted Students

Many departments organize campus visits for admitted students in the early Spring; there is limited (usually transportation and lodging) financial support for these visits.
