BCIE - US Why Study

Why Study in the US?

International students today have a wide variety of destinations to choose from when trying to make a decision as to where to pursue their studies. Studying abroad is a major investment and it is important for students to make an informed choice, based on facts. The US is a choice destination for thousands of students, and below are some of the reasons why these students decide to study in the US:

Top ranked education

The US offers some of the most esteemed, top ranked education anywhere in the world, diverse cities, beautiful parks, artistic, cultural, political and athletic events and a very multicultural population. The US education system offers international students the most varied set of education options in the world. International students can pursue anything from nuclear science to aviation to film to management studies.

Multicultural Environment

The US is one for the most multicultural and diverse countries in the world. International students will find living in the US a life changing experience.  The US spans six time zones and each state has it own customs and culture 


Students have a wide choice of institution to match their academic and social interests. You will find over 4,900 accredited colleges, universities, and institutes providing both undergraduate and graduate students with choices in more than 900 fields of study

Highly Innovative

US universities are world leaders in cutting-edge technology and are dedicated to providing a world class education to students. Familiarising students with the latest technology in science, engineering and related fields is of great importance.

Work while you study

In certain cases international students may typically work on campus for up to 20 hours per week while school is in session. Full time employment is allowed during breaks and vacation periods.

World-wide networking opportunities

Many US universities are truly ‘international’ with students from more than 100 counties. You therefore have a golden opportunity whilst studying in the USA to develop a network of friends and professors from all over the world. This will stand you in good stead when you graduate and enter the global labour market.

Value for money

Contrary to popular belief many US universities offer excellent value for money. Tuition fees are reasonable and substantially financial aid is available for students with good academic profile. To find out more please visit you local BCIE office.
