INTRODUCTION TO STUDYING IN THE US
The United States of America is host to more international students than any other country in the world with the figure fast approaching 0.6 million. In fact, international students comprise approximately 4% of the total undergraduate US universities and college population, and 10% of the population for US graduate school. As of 2010, a total of 105,000 Indian nationals were studying in US universities. International students from every continent in the world choose to study in the US because they believe that an American education would afford them the best preparation for their future. In addition, International students contribute more than $13 billion to the US economy.
As the number of international students at colleges and universities in the US increased by 8% to an all-time high of 671,616 in the 2008/09 academic year, students from India made up 103,260 of the overall number, according to the Open Doors report, which is published annually by the Institute of International Education (IIE) in collaboration with the US government.
The US is home to some of the leading and top ranked universities of the world such as Harvard University, Stanford University, MIT and Julliard. International students in the UK, after completion of their studies, are highly sought-after by employers worldwide. The country offers a wide range of academic options to students and the opportunities for practical training related to a student’s field of study are vast.
