Getting Help for Study in USA

The main source is the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the US State Department. It publishes various guides and maintains a helpful website. There are also several well-known professional associations, each with its own website and set of publications, to guide you. The biggest and best known are the Institute of International Education, nafsa (the national association of international educators) and the Council on International Educational Exchange.

All these have a primary interest in outgoing as well as incoming students, so you may have to search out the information they offer from among accounts meant for those moving in the opposite direction, from rather than to the United States. None the less, within both categories, they offer a comprehensive coverage.

Their advice ranges from what to consider on first deciding to study abroad, through trying to find funding and making a selection of places, up to finally completing study and receiving transcripts. The range of studies covered is also very wide. It includes work placements and EFL programs as well as undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses. One minor problem is that the term Study Abroad is often used in the United States to apply to full degree as well as to occasional study. Once this is understood, anyone using these agencies to research study opportunities will generally be well rewarded.

British Study Abroad students

Given the size and diversity of provision, it is fortunate that most British Study Abroad students are presented with a selection of institutions by their home university rather than having to begin the search for themselves. But, if you have to make a choice, it tends to be easier to manage in the United States.
