“USA offers a wide range of degrees which are globally recognized. Under "liberal arts philosophy" undergraduate degrees are quite flexible and vast number of academic options to choose from. For postgraduate and masters programs -US universities provide outstanding research infrastructure and facilities. The students get theoretical, practical and applied aspects of an area of study. The campuses are multicultural that prepare the students to be global citizens”.

According to 2012 Open Door’s Report - The number of international students at colleges and universities in the United States increased by 6.5% to 764,495 during the 2011/12 academic year.

Financing a post-secondary Education in the USA abroad is no easy task but fear not,as there are a number of resources to assist you . Over 20% of non-US students receive most of their academic funding from a US college or University in the USA through variety of programs. Many of them offer partial scholarships or full scholarships, fee waivers, graduate/research/teaching/student assistant scholarships etc.
International students also have the option of taking up well-paying campus jobs, working 20 hours a week on regular term and full-time during summer vacation. On completion of the course, students have the authorization to work for 12 months to 29 months known as OPT (Optional Practical Training) depending on their field of study. Good job opportunities will be available to students particularly with degrees in healthcare, teaching, business, finance, hotel management, accounting, technology, engineering, mathematics etc. as these are fields with great demand in a recovering economy.

Even after this if, your vote is not cast for a US education, here is the clincher, some universities in USA have started accepting 15 years of education over 16 years. These universities accept 15 years for Study in University of Southern California the field of Business, Hotel Management, Psychology, Computer Science, etc. This not only benefits the student by saving time but also helps them start earning early.
If you are apprehensive that you have missed the bus, do not fret, for many American universities are still open for admissions to their fall sessions beginning August/September 2013. All you have to do is to prepare your documents well. It’s a good time for starting applications for fall 2013 (September) intake. An early application will help students to bag most of the scholarships available, which universities offer to lure talent and brains. It is a good time to visit your counselor to initiate this process.

Head to USA and harvest the best crop of the ongoing economic upswing. We are committed to earnestly and correctly guide you at each and every step to help you reach the destination.
