Education in the US

The modern world is becoming increasingly global in scope, and therefore we all need to be able to communicate on the "international level". Studying abroad not only gives you a good knowledge of a foreign language, but also make your life richer and more interesting.

Universities in the USA

An American education is known throughout the world for its excellence, flexibility and for the range of opportunities it affords.

A degree from one of Study Group’s carefully selected partner institutions will give you the qualification you need to be internationally successful.

Undergraduate Studies at University
Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Science (BS) degrees are granted after                                   
4 years of successful study

In your first year, as a Freshman, the focus is on introductory courses giving a solid grounding in a wide range of subjects. There is usually a compulsory core curriculum which may include mathematics, science, English, history, logic and philosophy, but which also allows you to choose electives in subjects that interest you. This is also your chance to take introductory courses in what you hope will become your main discipline of study (known as your major). For example, you might take Economics as a Freshman if you wish to study a Business major.

In your second year or Sophomore year, you will complete the core curriculum and advance in some subjects to the next tier. Those students who have decided on a major may begin taking prerequisite classes at this time. However, you are not required to form ally declare a major until your junior year.                               

In the third year, as a Junior, you will begin the advanced coursework for your major and in your fourth year which is your Senior year, you will take your last exams and complete your Bachelor's degree.

Community Colleges in America
These are two-year colleges offering a wide range of undergraduate classes that can lead to an Associate’s degree. As well as traditional core disciplines such as mathematics, business, science and history, they also offer excellent vocational training in areas such as tourism, accounting, electronics, graphic design, hospital administration, and hospitality management. The curriculum is very flexible and it is possible to complete one year of study or less and gain valuable college credits. Alternatively, you can also progress from community college to university, where you complete your final two years to achieve the more advanced Bachelor's Degree.

Although the academic requirements are not as stringent and class sizes are typically much larger, the quality of teaching is still very good and courses are very reasonably priced.

Colleges in the USA

Community colleges are the ideal choice if you want to experience the richness of an American education, but are not yet academically ready for university and need a stepping-stone towards a full degree. They also provide a great way of experiencing a gap year abroad without going on to a full degree.
