5 Useful Facts About the US for Students

If you are considering applying and studying at a university abroad, especially in the United States, you will undoubtedly want to learn more about student life there. Depending on your culture and way of life, if you don’t know what to expect before attending, it can be overwhelming.

In this article, we’ll go over some fascinating and useful facts regarding studying in the US.

Where and What You Study Matters

Studying abroad can be an exciting experience, but it all depends on where and what you study. Your study abroad desire may be made or broken by the course and the university/college. As a result, it’s critical to select a subject or field in which you have a true interest. The following are some of the most well-known universities in the US:

  • Stanford University
  • Harvard University
  • University of Chicago
  • Cornell University
  • Columbia University

In addition to this, the country is well-known for certain courses. Some of the most popular fields/subjects in the US include the following:

  • Criminology
  • Finance
  • Special Education
  • Business Management
  • Engineering
  • Mathematics
  • Computer Science
  • Social Sciences
  • Physical and Life Sciences

Commuter Cities vs. College Towns

The type of city or location in which your university/college is located may have a significant impact on the social life of your university/college. The type of university/college you attend, the size of the town, and the classmates you meet will all have an impact on and transform your life outside of the classroom. To make things a little easier, keep the following in mind:

  • Commuter cities are usually larger, with a smaller number of students. Students and faculty members frequently come from nearby towns/cities to visit the university.
  • College towns can be found all around the country. These are small towns that have been mostly “conquered” by colleges, associations, and other organizations. Students, instructors, and staff members of the university make up a large portion of such universities.

Tuition Fees Can Be Expensive

American universities and colleges are very popular for their expensive tuition fees. The fee varies greatly depending on the subject and university you attend. Despite the high tuition rate, students can easily find and apply for numerous scholarship/fellowship schemes to help them pay for their education.

Excellent Student Service

Fortunately, all of your questions and concerns concerning the first few weeks of school will be answered quickly. The university’s faculty and staff recognize how demanding and difficult it is to be a newcomer, and they meet students every year who have faced similar challenges. That is one of the reasons why universities and colleges in the US have established services that are open to all international and domestic students, which include:

  • Course advising and registration
  • Career advice
  • Financial support
  • On-campus counseling and psychiatry

The First Week Is Crucial

In the US, there is a week known as “Orientation Week” in many universities and colleges. Students are introduced to their university/college classes, faculties, peers, and tutors. It’s like a whirlwind of a week. This particular ‘week’ will allow you to get a feel of the university firsthand.
