US education system: degrees and qualifications

Undergraduate studies in the United States last between two and four years, with students earning either an associate’s degree (2 years) or a bachelor’s degree (4 years). Typically, students receive foundational education in their field of study during the first half of their studies and then choose a major to focus on for the remaining years. Graduate degrees are only available to students with a bachelor’s degree.

Post-graduate studies, which last 5 years or more, are referred to as such in the United States. This is determined by whether the student pursues a master’s degree or pursues a PhD right away. Students with a master’s degree in the United States can complete their PhD in three years.

Furthermore, many universities in the United States now allow students to earn their degrees online. These distance learning programs in the United States are designed for students who cannot afford to leave their home country for an extended period of time. This is a cost-effective way to obtain a prestigious degree from anywhere in the world.

Apply to study in the USA

If you’ve decided to study in the United States and have chosen your program and universities, the next difficult step is the application process. For international students, this procedure can quickly become confusing and intimidating. That is why we have broken down the steps to getting into an American college or university for you.

After you’ve been accepted to a university, the next step is to apply for a student visa in the United States. One thing to remember about visas in the United States is that the type of visa you obtain will determine whether or not you can work and study in the United States at the same time. In the United States, you typically have the option of obtaining an F1, J1, or M1 student visa.
