The year 2011 had about 103,260 students in the USA for higher education. That was a growth of 8697 students from the previous year! So the question is why do students go to the US to study?
Besides the fact that America is like a beautiful molten chocolate cake, luring and teasing us offering the very best, both in terms of educational facilities as well as lifestyle, there are certain things about America that makes it undeniably one of the most sought after educational hubs in the world. To begin with, America has more than 10 campuses per country than any other country in the world. At the undergraduate level, the US provides excellent programmes both in the traditional as well as professional subjects. Apart from variety, some of the advantages of studying in the US are exposure to cutting edge technology, opportunity for research, training & teaching, flexibility of courses, support service for international students, rich campus life and global education facilities.
Students aspiring to study in the US can choose from a wide range of subjects from over 3600 colleges, universities and institutes covering about 900 fields of study. And probably this is why America is the number one destination for international students. And why not, because students have the liberty to choose from public or private university, a liberal arts college or a technical school, a women's or men's only college to a religiously-affiliated institution. The American structure of study is not just lectures, study sessions and tests. It comprises of community activities as well through varied social, cultural, and sports activities.
