The United States of America is one of the most popular destinations for international students. The US has one of the largest education systems in the world. This makes it a powerhouse of international education and research.

With around 4,500 higher education institutions, all providing world-class degree programs, it is no wonder that just over 1.1 million international students choose the US as their study destination each year. Higher education is delivered in institutions which are split into two main types. Public institutions are state-funded, have lower tuition fees and a larger capacity for students. Private institutions are funded by donations, tuition fees and grants, meaning that they have higher tuition fees, but fewer students.

The Education System in the United States follows a pattern similar to other countries:

  • ­čö╣Early childhood (or pre-kindergarten) education
  • ­čö╣Primary (or elementary) school
  • ­čö╣Middle (or junior high) school
  • ­čö╣Secondary (or high) school
  • ­čö╣Post-secondary (college, career, or technical schools) education

Education in the United States follows a pattern similar to that in many systems. Early childhood education is followed by primary school (called elementary school in the United States), middle school, secondary school (called high school in the United States), and then post-secondary (tertiary) education. Post-secondary education includes non-degree programs that lead to certificates and diplomas plus six degree levels: associate, bachelor, first professional, master, advanced intermediate, and research doctorate.

  • ­čö╣ Bachelor: The bachelorÔÇÖs degree is the most common first degree in U.S. higher education and is the degree that gives access to advanced studies.┬á Normally Bachelor degree takes 4 academic years
  • ­čö╣ Masters: The masterÔÇÖs degree is the first graduate-level qualification, or second cycle degree, in the U.S. higher education system. MasterÔÇÖs degrees generally take two years to complete, but the time period may be shorter or longer depending on how the degree program is structured
  • ­čö╣ Research Doctorate Degree: The research doctorate, or the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and its equivalent titles, represents the highest academic qualification in the U.S. education system. While the structure of U.S. doctoral programs is more formal and complex than in some other systems, it is important to note that the research doctorate is not awarded for the preliminary advanced study that leads to doctoral candidacy, but rather for successfully completing and defending the independent research presented in the form of the doctoral dissertation (thesis).

One of the major factors that determine a country for higher education is the cost. The studying cost in the US and the living cost in the US are major factors that determine whether the United States of America (USA) is a feasible destination for higher studies. The tuition fee for the USA varies according to the different universities, courses, and cities within a country.

­čö╣ The tuition fee range from US$. 10,000 and above per year. However, USA universities provide different scholarships and other financial assistance.

­čö╣ On average, a student spends approximately $10,000ÔÇô$12,000 per year on living expenses. But this amount entirely depends on the location where a student inhabits. If a student decides to reside in a metropolitan city, he would be spending more than a student who opts for a hostel or suburban accommodation.

­čö╣ The living expenses generally include accommodation costs, room, and boarding, food, travel, textbooks, weather-appropriate clothing, and entertainment expenses as well. Other expenses that are taken into consideration under living expenses include, travel expenses between India and the country of choice during vacation time; large purchases, such as PC, furniture, or even a rental car; medical expenses not covered by health insurance
