Study in USA
The USA is still the number one choice for international students and has the highest number of world ranked universities than any other country. Studying in the USA offers students the chance to expand career options, explore a huge and diverse nation, and learn from internationally-renowned teachers and researchers.
The choice of US universities is the largest in the world. An American college is usually smaller and offers only undergraduate degrees, while a university also offers graduate degrees. In each US university or college, a student will find schools (or faculties) that specialise in a subject area like Business or Engineering.
There are around half a million international students studying in the USA each year. The ability to choose and change subjects and schools is also a great advantage. A student can begin studying in a US college, complete a two-year associate degree, and then transfer to a larger US university for further education.
