WHY STUDY IN US:

QUALITY. CHOICE. VALUE. FLEXIBILITY

Studying in the United States of America is an opportunity to gain world class qualifications, explore the US, share your culture and make friends with students from around the world. 

There are thousands of accredited tertiary institutions in the US, offering a wide variety of     undergraduate and postgraduate programs. The quality of teaching, facilities and resources is renowned worldwide.

Types of Institutions

Degree-granting institutions in the US are referred to as colleges, universities or institutes. As a general rule, colleges tend to be smaller and usually offer only undergraduate degrees, while universities also offer postgraduate degrees. Institutes usually specialize in degree programs in a group of closely related subject areas such as art and design, fashion or technology. State Universities State or public universities are run by US state governments to provide subsidized, low-cost education to state residents. They tend to be very large and generally admit a wider range of students than private universities

Private Universities:  Private universities are funded by endowments, tuition fees, research grants and gifts from their alumni. Tuition fees tend to be higher than at state universities. They are generally smaller and may have fewer than 2000 students on their campuses.

Technical and Vocational Colleges

These institutions specialize in preparing students for entry into, or promotion within, the workplace. They offer certicate and other short-term programs that train students for a specic vocation or technology. Programs usually last two years or less.

Types of Degrees

There are two types of undergraduate degrees in the US – an associate’s degree which is a 2 year degree awarded by a community, technical/vocational college, & a bachelor’s degree which is a 4/5 year degree awarded by a college/university.

In the US, postgraduate study is called ‘graduate’ study. There are two levels of graduate degree programs in the US – a master’s degree which usually takes one or two years of full-time study to complete and a doctoral degree which usually takes three to ve years of full-time study. Both involve a combination of research and coursework.

Admission Process

Finding the right university to suit your requirements is important. This will depend on the academic discipline and qualication you wish to study, and the location, size and academic quality of the university you

want to study at.  Some institutions are very selective, while others accept most applicants.

Most students apply to between four and seven institutions in order to secure acceptance at an institution that meets their needs, ability and nancial means. Application requirements and fees vary depending on the university you wish to attend. Applications may require an application form, academic transcripts, standardized test results, a personal statement and letters of reference. Each university’s admission pack will let you know exactly what is required.

Standardized Tests

Standardized tests are a requirement for entry into most US universities. The test you will be required to sit will depend on your level and eld of study. Contact the admissions department at the university you apply to for advice on which test you need to sit.

The ACT and SAT tests are both widely recognized for undergraduate college admissions. They measure students’ knowledge and ability to complete college level work. 

The GRE test is widely recognized for postgraduate college admissions. A General Test measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills, and further Subject Tests gauge undergraduate achievement in specields of study. 

The TOEFL test measures the ability of non-native speakers of English to use and understand English as it is spoken, written, and heard in college and university settings, and may be required for international students whose native language is not English.

Financial Aid

Study in the US can be expensive. A degree in the US can cost from US$5,000 to US$40,000 per year in tuition fees alone, depending on the institution you choose to attend. There is limited assistance for international students.

Few scholarships pay a student’s entire costs and many are inclined to give partial nancial aid to students who are able to contribute something themselves. There are three main sources of funding – university-based, private and government.

You should explore as many possible avenues for funding assistance as you can. When you request an admission pack from a US university, you should also request a   nancial aid pack. Be aware that deadlines for funding applications often occur up to 12 months before the actual date of enrolment. The average turn-around time – from initial application to offer of funding – takes from six to nine months.
