Study in the United StatesEducationUSA logo

  • One of your best sources of information about everything related to study in the United States is the EducationUSA center located in your own country.
  • The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the US Department of State has also published a very valuable booklet entitled:
    If You Want to Study in the United States: Getting Ready to Go (pdf)
  • Study in the States is a great website for prospective and current international students looking for information about obtaining a student visa and maintaining status.
  • If you would like to do even more preparation has prepared a series of courses: Before You Leave, While You’re Abroad, and Once You Return that cover much of what you will need to know about coming to the US for study and returning home afterwards.
