Support for applying to University in the US
What can America offer students?
The United States remains the number one destination for international students, welcoming more international students each year then any other country. This is largely due to the excellent standard of education, with 5 of the top 10 universities in the world. This means there a thousands of institutions and degree programmes to choose from. These can range from relatively small often privately funded universities to huge state supported university campuses, with all the facilities the students need for both study and leisure activities.
United States universities require you to take general education or core classes, in your first years of study. This provides a well-rounded education as well as giving more time to consider the subject you will major in. This is different to many other countries where you specialise from day one.
A further differentiator of many US universities is a focus on students obtaining internships during their studies, providing hands-on experience and improving employability. Finally America’s has a lot to offer during your holidays with iconic; cities, cultural attractions and national parks.
Studying in the USA can be expensive. For example fees for graduate programmes at Ivy League universities can be in excess of £50,000. However, for most universities the average cost of studying in the US is comparable with the UK and Australia. Furthermore the cost of living is generally lower than many other overseas destinations. With this in mind the US can offer a globally respected degree at a reasonable cost.
