  • High global recognition
    US universities are highly recognized globally and the top three 2017 world's best universities are all from US. US distinguish between ‘university’ and ‘college’. Universities are comprehensive and focus on all-rounded teaching strategies and research. Colleges pay attention on teaching and learning. Many middle classes and upper elite Americans study in colleges, including Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton graduated from Wellesley College, which has high reputation and very high teaching standard.
  • Flexible and high standard education system
    US education standard is one of the best in the world and the university system is the most advanced. Since the US government does not directly manage the universities’ operation and teaching and learning methods, US universities possess higher degree of freedom and are more competitive. They maintain the highest teaching standard and provide greatest support to students. Its four year education system supports an all-rounded education for better adaptation and learning.
  • Extra curriculum activities
    Extra curriculum activities take an important role in the university life. US provides great support to the abundant activities in the universities, including talks, discussion sessions and exchange activities attracting lots of students to participate in. Overseas students develop international perspective and learning is not limited in the classroom.
  • Communion
    There is a high proportion of immigrants in the US and it is composed of people from different nationalities, including overseas students. Overseas students assimilate into the university easily because of the openness and passion of US and its people, assisting students in their English level, communication and their understanding of multiculturalism.
  • Career and internship development
    Pragmatism is practiced in US and universities advocate learning and internship opportunities. Many US universities set up student career centers for helping students look for internship. Public and private enterprises would approach universities with high rankings to recruit interns and graduates. Students are very aware of their own career development and would actively participate in summer and winter internships and the developments after graduation. Us Optional Practical Training (OPT) allows overseas students to work in US for a year after graduation for enterprise internship experiences and allow students to be more competitive in their future career.
  • Overseas visa
    Overseas students who successfully applied for visa from the US have advantage of travelling and working in other countries without first obtaining a visa with US's Visa Waiver Program. Overseas students’ parents could obtain tourist visa for visiting their children and this creates opportunities for families to travel around the world.
