Studying in the USA
The USA is the world’s number one choice of destination for international students, with over 10,00,000 students choosing to take up their undergraduate or postgraduate studies in the United States—and the numbers are growing every year. Today almost 5% of all students enrolled in higher-level education in the USA are foreign students.
There are many reasons that put the US on the top of the list for overseas education—among them being its strong economy, vibrant campus life and the variety, flexibility and quality academic options it offers. Degrees obtained in the US are the best in the world, and students are ensured of excellent career options, both in their home country and abroad, on completing their education here. They can round off their theoretical education with industry based training and research and stay on top of the latest technological advancements in the world.
While education in the US is expensive, students can take advantage of various merit based university assistance schemes, and can also apply for scholarships and fellowships awarded by departments. Many universities also offer research assistantships or teaching assistantships for postgraduate students, and they can get a tuition fee waiver for one or more semesters. There are also on-campus jobs available where minimum wages are paid.
