Students talking before service in Cannon Chapel

International Applicants

International Applicants

Candler's international community includes students, faculty, visiting professors and lecturers representing over a dozen countries, and we have educational exchanges with more than 20 theological schools around the world.

Students and faculty from Candler participating in these exchanges spend time in the classroom, but also have the opportunity to experience the local church and community practices. In turn, visiting faculty and students at Candler participate fully in academic and spiritual life.

By sharing their unique cultural and theological perspectives, our students, faculty and exchange participants are better equipped to face the challenges of religious communities that, whether at home or abroad, reflect an increasingly diverse world and local/global dynamic.

Note: Students are considered international if they are not citizens or permanent residents of the United States.


International Student Life

Candler offers many avenues for international students to meet one another and thrive on campus and in Atlanta. The Candler International Student Association (CISA), in particular, serves as a welcoming "home away from home" for students, offering guidance, information and opportunities to enhance your social, academic and lifestyle experience at Candler.
