International Students

Andover Harvard Theological Library

The HDS Office of Student Life recognizes the challenges international students experience when becoming acquainted with a new country, culture, and lifestyle, as well as the adjustments associated with a new academic environment. The Office of Student Life seeks to make these transitions as smooth as possible. All international students are encouraged to connect with the Office of Student Life at studentlife@hds.harvard.edu.

HDS Voices

Teresa Coda

HDS Career Services went above and beyond to help me navigate my job search journey. From providing me with résumé feedback and helping me craft my first cover letter, they offered guidance and services throughout the process. I felt particularly supported when they arranged a mock committee-style interview. The time, energy, and thoughtfulness they put into preparing me for that interview was immensely helpful and touching.
