As director of international admissions, Peter leads the team in recruiting and enrolling international undergraduate students to Temple University. He came to the United States as an international student from Denmark and joined Temple after more than 15 years working in international higher education. He loves connecting with students and their families around the world, helping them navigate the admissions process and ultimately being their partner in their life-changing study abroad experience.
Peter strongly believes that with its wealth of internship and research opportunities, Temple’s Philadelphia location provides an incredible backdrop for any international student, and Temple is the springboard to these opportunities. It is also a premier historical and cultural heritage city located close to New York City and Washington, D.C. Another great benefit of Philadelphia is the food—students can literally eat their way around the world with the city’s selection of great restaurants.
