International students come to the U.S. for undergraduate and graduate college study for a number of reasons. These variables often include quality of education, future employment opportunities, the cost of education, scholarships, social recognition and opportunities of immigration.
“Without a doubt, America has one of the world’s best education systems, with outstanding programs in virtually all fields. Combine this with several thousand colleges and universities to choose from and the U.S. has options and educational opportunities for everyone,” said Mandee Heller Adler, CEO and founder of International College Counselors.
International Students also flock to the U.S. to immerse themselves in American culture and meet new people. Many employers, both in the U.S. and abroad, value the knowledge, adaptability and experience that international students acquire by studying in the United States. Worldwide, career prospects can be enhanced through the development of cross-cultural skills, communication abilities, self-confidence and independence.
U.S. degrees are also recognized throughout the world for their excellence.
While studying in the United States is a rewarding experience, international students often have trouble navigating their way through the college admissions process.
“We recommend international students seek help from a U.S. college advisor who can help him or her navigate the college admissions process,” said Adler, an expert college advisor, South Florida based.
A college advisor can also help answer questions regarding visa status, transcripts, interviews, scholarships, and more. International students may also want help when it comes to deciding where to study. As college advisors at International College Counselors know, finding a college that fits the student is important.
International students who want to study in the U.S. should note that the study abroad application process is time-intensive. College advisors at International College Counselors typically recommend that students apply nine to 12 months in advance.
In 2012, the college advisors at International College Counselors helped more than 200 students find, apply to and gain acceptance into the college of their dreams. The expert college advisors at International College Counselors speak English and Spanish and are dedicated to helping students and their parents with the often daunting and complex college application process.
