Description


The higher education system in the United States is unlike any other in the world. Are you prepared?

With billions of dollars of funding, cutting-edge research and innovation, and unmatched flexibility on more than 5,000 campuses, the United States offers unequalled educational opportunities. It welcomes more international students than any other country, students who are seeking a combination of intellectual and cross-cultural experiences that will prepare them to succeed in the global marketplace. But with this depth and breadth also comes complexity and confusion. Succeeding at a U.S. college or university can be difficult if you don’t understand the system.
