Study in United States

A young experiment with democracy and a shared national love for fried food, the United States has a long, unique history, especially with producing some of our favorite films and television shows. Add in an enthusiastic love for baseball and (American) football, and you’d come close to arriving at the image of American culture.

The U.S. is a massive place, with each state containing its own history; and when you’re going from one side to another, it feels as if you’re going from planet to planet.

International students from all over the world look for options in the U.S., and travelers and explorers are often looking to find out whether Americans are as loud and silly as they are on television (spoiler: they are). Being a student, though, brings you in contact with the top-ranked and largest universities in the world, and they are ready to welcome students like you every year.

Why Study in the U.S.?

You only need to look at the university rankings to see that U.S. universities dominate the lists of the best universities in the world. But, if you’re inclined to ignore these rankings, you can also be easily astounded by the sheer number of accredited universities all over the U.S. In fact, according to the Association of American Colleges and Universities, there are 2,613 accredited four-year colleges and universities in the U.S.! Holy cow!

In the U.S., secondary schools are divided into different categories: research universities, community colleges, liberal arts colleges, and vocational schools. Depending on your needs, these different colleges and institutions have something to offer you. Most commonly, however, if you’re looking for a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree, you’re probably looking for either a research university or a liberal arts college.

At any university in the U.S., they are interested in welcoming students from everywhere in the world. The classes are all delivered in English, and the universities offer extra help and assistance to students who are travelling from other countries. And, though the majority of Americans speak English, there is no official national language in the U.S.

What to Study in the United States?

All over the U.S., universities offer a lot of topics and degree programmes that you can choose from. Some of the biggest names, at the biggest Ivy League schools, teach programmes in the subject you’re most interested in. Here are some of the subjects you can consider:

Major cities in the U.S.

Which universities to attend in the U.S.

Helpful ways to make sure you qualify for an American university

Take Preparation Courses: These kinds of courses enable degree-seeking students to get an extra educational boost just before they start their Master’s degree or other post-graduate degree programmes. Try a pre-M.B.A., pre-Law, or pre-Medicine programme, as well as any other foundation or preparation courses that will allow you to study in the degree programme of your choice;

Improve your English through an English-language prep course: If you’re attending a degree programme in the U.S., you will need to prove that your language skills are good enough to participate in the classes and understand the lectures. These courses will also prepare you for any of the English-language tests that universities require.

 English-language tests

To apply to study in the U.S., you’ll need to provide proof you have a diploma for your English proficiency.

The certificates generally accepted by the universities in India are:

  • TOEFL
  • IELTS
  • CAE or CPE

Still, you should always check on your university’s website, just to be sure what the exact requirements are.

Living in United States

What is it like to study in the U.S.?

The American university system is known for being quite casual, and students at the university level are given quite a level of flexibility with regard to attendance, course requirements, and assignments.

However, students still have to abide by the classroom rules set by their individual instructors, and understand what the expectations are for each course.

Generally, courses are discussion-based, seminar style classes, where it’s a smaller group of students debating or questioning different topics. You’ll also find the normal lecture-style classes, especially for topics that have a lot of students (Computer Science, Medicine, Business, etc.). The way courses are structured really depend upon the content or the subject being taught.

Tuition fees for universities in the U.S.

In the U.S., tuition fees vary based on the state, the university funding model, and the student’s country of origin. So, to gauge an average is a rather difficult task. However, thanks to the folks at College Board, they’ve rendered an estimate of last year’s average tuition costs, which will roughly reflect the next few years.

  • Public four-year university for out-of-state/foreign students: $39,890 per year
  • Private four-year university: $49,320’
Cost of Living in the U.S.

As with the tuition fees, living cost in the U.S. can vary dramatically based on your location. Still, relative to the rest of the world, the U.S. can still be quite pricey in terms of living cost. But, it’s cool; you’ll be a famous actor one day, and it’ll all be worth it.

Here is a breakdown of prices you’ll find in the U.S.:

  • 3-course meal for 2 at a mid-range restaurant: $50.00
  • Milk: $0.86
  • Loaf of bread: $2.55
  • Monthly transportation pass (bus, metro): $65.00
  • Taxi: $1.62 per KM
  • Rent a 3-bedroom Apartment: $1,905.20 per month (Maximum)
  • Cappuccino: $3.91
  • Beer: $4.50
