About UK

Experience UK

Your two-day visit offers the opportunity to meet with faculty whose research is of interest to you, to meet our current graduate students, and to tour our research facilities. During the visit, there is time to ask questions about IBS and our doctoral programs, and of course, we happily show off the lovely UK campus and the city of Lexington. Last but not least, the visit also provides the IBS Admissions Committee information they require concerning your qualifications for admission.


We cover the costs (travel, meals, and hotel) of this visit to Lexington. For those flying into Lexington, the Office of Biomedical Education will make flight arrangements following consultation with you to determine the best itinerary possible. We also provide accommodations for students requiring an overnight stay.
