Study in USA?
Should you study in the US? Why have so many
international students chosen to study in the US over
another country? Does the US still welcome
international student? What are your US study options?
The US hosts more international students than any
other country in the world, a number fast approaching
600,000. In fact, international students comprise
approximately 4% of the total undergraduate US
university and US college population, and 10% for US
graduate school. These international students from
every continent in the world choose to study in the US
because they believe that a US education would afford
them the best preparation for their future. They leave
homes, families and friends in order to pursue their
dreams of an education in the US. In fact,
International students who study in the US contribute
more than $13 billion to the US economy!
Maybe you have been dreaming of studying in the U.S.A.
for a long time, or maybe you have discovered that you
need to improve your English in order to continue your
studies or career. You may also have discovered that
you can best gain expertise in your field at a
particular U.S. university. Whatever the reasons, you
now hope to come to the U.S.A. to accomplish your
goals. You have read about the U.S.A., seen American
films and videos and talked to Americans. But only the
experience of actually living in the U.S.A. will give
you the mastery of the language and sympathy with the
culture that is necessary for understanding this large
and influential country.
Many foreign students arrive in the U.S.A. with
misconceptions about American life. They are
pleasantly surprised to find that not all Americans
are blond, wealthy or intolerant of others.
U.S. universities may differ from those in your own
country in several ways. For one thing, classes are
generally small. There may be as few as ten to twenty
students in a class. While in class, students are
encouraged and expected to contribute to the
discussion. Professors meet with students in their
offices or even share coffee or meals with them. The
close relationship between students and faculty serves
to motivate students and fosters a personal approach
to the curriculum.
Most U.S. university students live on or near the
school campus. When you are studying in the U.S.A.,
you will have many opportunities to join planned and
informal activities, spending your leisure and study
hours with other students. This will enhance your
language skills. From your fellow students you will
learn about U.S. culture and about all the other
diverse cultures represented on any U.S. campus.
