Six Reasons to Study Abroad in USA

woman in UK

The higher education system in USA is a major draw for international students from every corner of the world. What are some of the common reasons that make USA stand out as an overseas education destination? We have compiled a few of them:

Work while studying

An international student gets ample job opportunities—both part-time and full-time—in USA. During holidays, a student is allowed to work for 40 hours per week. Students can also work for one year on a student visa  getting practical training to complement their education under OPT. Students who receive STEM degrees and meet other specified requirements, can also apply for a 24-month extension of their post-completion OPT.

Flexible and comprehensive course structure 

Students who look to gather practical learning in subject matters would find US a perfect study-abroad destination. Given its flexible nature, a student can also complete a ‘double major’ (that is, a degree in two subjects) within the normal four-year of study. There is also the provision to customize a course according to one’s coursework, at the graduate level, i.e. master's degree. Thereby, an international student can boost one’s academic goals by studying abroad in USA.

Research and training opportunities 

Universities in USA are a hub of cutting-edge technology and provide best available equipment and resources to their students. It is not without reason that the country boasts of innovation and entrepreneurship in the field of first-of-its-kind technology.

An international student in a US university can also derive huge benefits by being a Teaching Assistant to their professors—which would help broaden their knowledge and skill set.

Grants and scholarships

The US government offers a wide range grants and scholarships to international students. Notably, various other government and non-governmental bodies also offer external funds to students. Our overseas education counsellors at Hurray can help familiarise you with quite a few of them.

Vibrant campus life

Universities in USA are a hub of cutting-edge technology and provide best available equipment and resources to their students. It is not without reason that the country boasts of innovation and entrepreneurship in the field of first-of-its-kind technology.

Universities in USA offer a lot of exciting mediums towards building bridges of friendship between students of different countries. By opting to study abroad in USA, a student can also give a lift to the creative persona in them. A student can indulge in a pottery class, join a painting or dance club, or even nurture the writer in him/her by joining the college magazine team.

Career Opportunities that strengthen one’s CV

Given the dynamism of a US degree course, a student can lend strength to their profile and get noticed by a large number of international companies that could have tie-up with their college/universities. Additionally, one can enhance one’s chance of working in time-honored international companies in their home country too.

While these are some of the common reasons that make US a fascinating study-abroad destination, there are more to the country.
