Study in USA: Why choose an American education

World-class colleges, great job opportunities, cross-culture experiences are some of the reasons why international students choose to study abroad at American universities.

An American education is synonymous with quality and merit-based admissions. The global name recognition of “Made in the U.S.A.” translates into lucrative job opportunities post-graduation. The liberal arts foundation that underlies American colleges and universities, allowing students to explore in-depth subjects other than their major, makes the degree so valuable. The result is a global-minded, in-demand, problem-solver.

Many students go to the U.S. looking for a reprieve from a high-stakes, test-driven education where they have little discretion in determining their studies. College campuses in the U.S. are like small student towns that attract the best and the brightest, provide opportunities to study with the top minds in their field, and encourage students to get involved. Students are invited to experiment with different courses, allowing them to gain a new perspective and potentially steering them toward a new career path. Students should be prepared for the commitment; students eat, sleep, socialize and study on or near campus!

College is more than going to class. Most of the research work and assignments are done outside of class. During test periods, students can expect to be dedicating upwards of 40 hours a week, depending on their class-load. Academics are hands-on and interactive. Students often work side-by-side with their professors, supporting fieldwork and innovative research.

Feeling lonely is one of the biggest challenges international students face. Being away from home is difficult, and once the excitement of the new environment wears off, students find themselves feeling homesick. The good news is that international students find American campuses and students open and friendly! But international students need to step outside their comfort zone to connect. American colleges and universities offer numerous internships and extra-curricular activities. These range the gamut of what is imaginable – sports to film clubs, teaching assistantships to research opportunities, school newspaper to art club, student life organizations allow students to explore their interests and have fun.

The friends, professors, and advisors student have in college will help them look for internships, provide references, and job opportunities. These connections will lay the groundwork for a student’s success long after they have earned their diploma.
