USA is commonly known as the ‘land of opportunity’. Fifty states make up the USA and the country offers a wonderful combination of amazing cities, quaint towns, great beaches, brilliant oceans, sprawling farmlands, unique deserts, gorgeous lakes, winding river and incredible waterfalls.

The education system here is the most versatile and flexible higher education system for international students in the world.
American education is divided into several broad categories, such as elementary school, middle school and high school. Post-secondary education (college or university) is a special branch of the education system and is governed differently to schools in America. “The structure of U.S. education includes 12 years of regular schooling, preceded by a year or two of pre-school education, and followed by a four-stage higher education degree system (associate, bachelor’s, master’s, doctorate) plus various non-degree certificates and diplomas”. The statistics say that over 500,000 international students are pursuing their higher education degrees in the U.S.
