Study in USA
Studying in the United States and abroad doesn’t just give you tangible degrees and certificates. Your experience says something about who you are. Living and studying in another country—especially where your language isn’t spoken—is challenging, requires courage and a positive attitude. Sometimes, these characteristics are more influential than your degree.
There are a wide range of schools, countless areas of study and specialty degrees. If you are interested in studying business, you are not relegated to just general study, but can choose from many concentrations: accounting, marketing, international business, business management, business administration, or finance. (There are many more!) This type of specialty study is available at the undergraduate, graduate and doctorate level, too.
One option you may not be aware of is studying at a community college, which is a two-year school in which you can begin your university study. You can complete the first two years of your bachelor’s degree at a community college and then transfer your credentials to a four-year university. This is extremely common in the USA. Community colleges offer lower tuition costs, smaller class sizes and more personal attention. Many community colleges also offer intensive English language programs.
Because there are so many choices available, it is helpful to consider other factors that are important to you. Tuition prices and cost of living are going to vary from school to school. If cost is important, then you may consider studying at a public university or looking at schools in a rural areas. Prestigious and private universities and colleges should not be set aside, though. Research all of the universities that interest you to find out if they offer scholarships or financial assistance. Many schools offer scholarships, but you have to look for them.
Other interests that may be important to you are the setting and local culture. For instance, the West Coast region has many beaches, outdoor activities, and the people have a relaxed attitude. The Midwest has many large research universities and the people are known for their hospitality and kindness.
Wherever you choose to study, you will find that Americans are kind and welcoming to international students, campuses are safe, and each area of the United States has a unique culture.
