The United States welcomes more international students than any other country. They come from all over the world to access the country’s rich and dynamic education system. But the depth and breadth that attracts international students is also a source of complexity and confusion. That’s why international careers expert Stacie Nevadomski Berdan and IIE president Allan Goodman have written their third co-written student guide, Preparing to Study in the USA: 15 Things Every International Student Should Know.
This new book prepares students planning to attend a U.S. college or university succeed in and fully embrace the U.S. education system by addressing the topics most critical to international student success, identified by U.S. international student advisors, including:
- Finding and applying to the right school
- Understanding the importance of critical thinking and the value of liberal education
- Taking full advantage of the broad range of available resources
- Becoming immersed in a wide variety of campus activities beyond academics
