US universities offer diverse courses with flexibility in structure. Undergraduates can explore interests before declaring a major, while in graduate studies, you can choose preferences and focus on personalized dissertation ideas.

Classes are flexible in scheduling, but seriousness is essential for grades. Professors appreciate a casual attitude with tangible results; otherwise, re-examinations may follow.

Cutting-edge facilities in many US institutions support groundbreaking research and innovation. 

US weather varies widely, from extreme cold to scorching heat, with coastal states experiencing potential flash floods and hurricanes.

Coffee culture is prevalent; be ready to spend time at Starbucks before morning classes.

Americans are passionate about American football, not soccer, and the enthusiasm for the sport is widespread.

  • Its multicultural society.
  • The high quality and international standard of higher education. Approximately 50% of top 100 universities in the world come from the United States.
  • The comfortable and secure learning environment.
  • Permission to work part time up to 20 hours per week during school period and full time up to 40 hours per week during the school holidays.
  • Opportunities for OPT (apprentice) to work full time from twelve to seventeen months in the United States after graduation (depending on the academic major you take).

International students who want to study in the United States must study full-time as part of the student visa requirements. All international students in the United States, both at universities and language schools must have a F-1 student visa. In addition, there is also the J-1 visa for student exchange, inclusive of both for academic and cultural exchange and M-1 visa for students who take non-academic lectures or courses in the United States.

Before a student visa is being applied for, the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) document called the I-20 must be issued by an institution in the United States as evidence of the student’s admission. SEVIS is an online database of all international students issued by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Other supporting documents required are proof of academic studies, financial ability, TOEFL®/ IELTS™ result, birth certificate, family card. A payment of USD 160 for visa application (through a bank designated by the US embassy) and the SEVIS fee of USD 200 (paid online) are also required. Registration for visa can be done 120 days before intake (date of school entry). However, new students are only allowed to enter the United States 30 days prior to commencement. Upon arrival in the United States, students have to report to the International Office on campus, so that the school can immediately complete the information required on SEVIS. Negligence for failing to report can lead to a student visa being revoked.

International students studying in the United States must have health insurance during their study. It is also required by the schools that every student who goes to the United States has an insurance that guarantees cover for his/her health, because the cost of healthcare in the United States is known to be very expensive. Therefore, schools have a policy that combines insurance costs with tuition fees, so that students who arrive in the US will definitely have health insurance during their study. Insurance costs included in the tuition fee range between USD 600 – USD 1,500 per year.

Lots of accommodation options are available for international students in the United States, ranging from accommodation in university, renting an apartment or house, to staying with a local family – homestay.

For dormitories provided by the university, students need to make reservations as early as two (2) or three (3) months beforehand. For students who arrive in the US earlier, they can stay in a hotel, motel, YMCA youth hostel, or international houses.

The cost of accommodation in the United States ranges from USD 700 – USD 3,000 per month.

International students are allowed to work part time inside the campus area (on-campus) only and for a maximum of 20 hours per week. However, after they graduate, students have the opportunity to work full time for up to one (1) year, which is known as the Optional Practical Training (OPT). Students who pursued majors in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) during their studies get a chance to extend their OPT for another 24 months.
