Here are some of the reasons students give us as they depart for their studies across the pond:

Did you know?

  • A bachelor’s degree in the USA takes four years to complete, giving you room for academic flexibility
  • Community colleges offer two-year associate degrees, often have transfer agreements with four-year universities, and can be more affordable with less rigorous entry requirements
  • Over 600 US universities offer international students scholarships of $20,000 or more, and 250 have ‘full ride’ scholarships available
  • Some universities in the USA don’t require admissions exams
