The higher education system in the United States is unlike any other in the world. Are you prepared?
With billions of dollars of funding, cutting-edge research and innovation, and unmatched flexibility on more than 5,000 campuses, the United States offers unequalled educational opportunities. It welcomes more international students than any other country, students who are seeking a combination of intellectual and cross-cultural experiences that will prepare them to succeed in the global marketplace.
But with this depth and breadth also comes complexity and confusion. Succeeding at a U.S. college or university can be difficult if you don’t understand the system. Preparing to Study in the USA addresses the most critical topics identified by U.S. international student advisers, including:
• Finding and applying to the right school for you
• Understanding the importance of critical thinking and the value of liberal education
• Taking full advantage of the broad range of available resources
• Immersing yourself in a wide variety of campus activities beyond academics
Every student who is considering studying in the United States should read this book.
