Study in USA

One of the main reasons why students choose to study in the U.S. is the country’s reputation for renowned higher-education programs. Approximately, fifty percent of the world’s top 50 universities are located in the U.S., due to small class sizes, highly accredited professors, and advanced technology and research capabilities.
Study any subject you can think of

• Whether you want to study Computer Science and become the next tech genius, get a degree in Engineering and invent innovative solutions, or study Business and learn how money makes the world go round, with the U.S. education system, you’ll surely become an expert in your field.
• The American higher education framework offers adaptable alternatives to the students as per their requirements and interests. At the undergrad level, students can pick diverse courses even before they make their decision for a major toward the end of second year
Be a part of groundbreaking research

• The United States is a leader in many areas of technology and research.
• Benefitting from the generous funding, universities offer support to international PhD students for their ongoing or future researches.
• Along with pursuing their studies, students can apply for Teaching and Research Assistantships. These assistantships help the student in widening their insights and skill set. They also provide a chance to work with the best in their chosen field of study
U.S. universities have engaging campuses

• University campuses in the U.S. have a life of their own and are like small student township wherein students are encouraged to socialize and make friends. One can grab a burger (and at a cheap price too), go on a picnic, take yoga classes for free and by all means, join the super-fun student parties.
• And that’s not all you can do. All campuses include a lot of facilities which offer a relaxing and entertaining environment. When not in class, one can make the most out of these facilities.
• Studying in U.S. gives a chance to know and find out about different cultures and sharing one’s culture.
Guaranteed successful career after graduation

• Studying in the USA will offer a competitive edge once one enters the job market. Employees who speak multiple languages, have international experiences and are able to quickly adapt to new professional environments are in high demand.
• Companies are always on a hunt for a candidate with an international mindset and qualities of a problem solver.
Classroom Environment

• The American university classroom atmosphere is very dynamic. You will be expected to share your opinion, argue your point, participate in class discussions and give presentations. International students find this one of the most surprising aspects of the American education system.
• Each week professors usually assign textbook and other readings. You will be expected to keep up-to-date with the required readings and homework so you can participate in class discussions and understand the lectures. Certain degree programs also require students to spend time in the laboratory.
Credits

Each course is worth a certain number of credits or credit hours. This number is roughly the same as the number of hours a student spends in class for that course each week. A course is typically worth three to five credits.
Transfers

If a student enrolls at a new university before finishing a degree, generally most credits earned at the first school can be used to complete a degree at the new university. This means a student can transfer to another university and still graduate within a reasonable time.
Thesis

• Thesis is a part of course curriculum that a student may opt for. If the student has selected thesis to be a part of the curriculum, then the total number of courses to be finish in order to meet the graduate requirements are less ( up to 24 credit hours of courses that is 8 courses).
• Thesis will count towards 6 credit hours. Student will have to find something new, kind of new discovery or invention will make a thesis.
Research Assistantship

• The student will have to do some research under the guidance of the professor. Most of the students are offered a RA of 20 hrs/week or 10hrs/week after they arrive at the university or in their 2nd or 3rd semester. It is offered to a student by any professor, who wants that particular student to work for his research.
• With RA, the students are offered a tuition waiver which would help them waive off their tuition fee almost entirely. But still there is a nominal amount that needs to be paid by the students.
Teaching Assistantship

• TA is offered to a student by the department wherein the student would grade the papers of the undergraduate or graduate students in a particular subject. They will be assigned as a TA for a particular course.
• Responsibility of a TA would be to assist the professor who is teaching that particular course. Payment to a TA may vary depending on the work assigned or the department.
Graduate Assistantship

• This is same as any part time job in the university, like website development for any department, dining manager, or library assistant. There will be few GA positions in most of the departments.
• These are mostly offered to the students after they land at the university.
Optional Practical Training (OPT)

OPT is work authorization which allows a student to work in a job directly related to the student‘s major area of study after completion of course.
Curricular Practical Training (CPT)

CPT is work authorization which allows a student to do internship related to the student‘s major area of study while pursuing the course. Student is eligible to work for any internship for a period of 11 months.
