Background:

 

Britains American colonies broke with the mother country in 1776 and were recognized as the new nation of the United States of America following the Treaty of Paris in 1783. During the 19th and 20th centuries, 37 new states were added to the original 13 as the nation expanded across the North American continent and acquired a number of overseas possessions. The two most traumatic experiences in the nations history were the Civil War (1861-65) and the Great Depression of the 1930s. Buoyed by victories in World Wars I and II and the end of the Cold War in 1991, the US remains the worlds most powerful nation state. The economy is marked by steady growth, low unemployment and inflation, and rapid advances in technology.

 

Higher Education:

 

The United States has approximately 4,670 colleges and universities. 17 of the top 20 scientific research universities in the world are in the United States (source: Shanghai Jiao Tong Universitys Academic Ranking of World Universities), and 8 out of the top 11 universities in the world are in the United States (source: Times Higher Education Supplements world university rankings).

 

US universities, US colleges and US schools constantly rank very high in world rankings, just one of the reasons to study in the US. Schools such as Harvard University, Stanford University, MIT, Julliard, Berklee School of Music, West Point, are all world famous and welcome international students. The US offers international students the most exciting, rewarding and comprehensive array of study options in the world. International students who choose to study in the US have almost unlimited study choices. Furthermore, international students who successfully complete their US study are highly sought-after by employers worldwide.

There are more than 4,000 public and private colleges, universities, and community colleges in the United States, including over 600 public four-year colleges and universities and over 1,650 private four-year colleges and universities. These traditional institutions enrol nearly 15 million students. In addition, more than 6,250 other non-collegiate postsecondary institutions offer specialised vocational and technical training. You will find a size that fits you best, whether it is a small private institution with an enrolment of only several hundred students or a large state college or university system with tens of thousands of students.

 

Any student can find an appropriate program within the rich and diverse higher education system. This is true whether you are seeking career-oriented vocational and technical training from a community college, a liberal arts education from a small private college, an undergraduate science degree from a prestigious research institution, or one of a variety of programs offered by a multipurpose university. High quality educational programs are offered in all types of institutions at prices that vary as much as the programs and institutions themselves.

 

At graduate level, US colleges and universities offer both research and professional degrees. Foreign students are engaged in both types of program, studying a wide variety of subjects. Engineering, business and management, physical and life sciences, and mathematics and computer science are the most popular fields of study at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

 

Research programs  are offered in most academic fields, including engineering, mathematics and computer science, physical and life sciences, and the humanities. These programs lead to either a masters degree or a doctorate, and also can include postdoctoral study and research.  Professional programs  lead to a masters (MBA or MPA) or other degree, such as the JD or MD, which allows students to work in fields such as law, medicine, social work, or business.

 

A number of other factors cause foreign students to choose study in the US. Most American faculty members are tenured and employed full-time by their institutions. While not as diverse as the student population, some 13% of US college and university faculty are members of minority groups. There is also a low student/faculty ratio of 15 students for every two instructors.

 

 

Why do foreign students pay the price to enrol in US institutions of higher education? We believe it is because they view the cost as an investment. They have determined that the necessary skills and experience they will gain by studying in the United States will reap a high return for their money, and a better paying job when they return home.

 

In addition, the vast majority of foreign students will return home as fluent English speakers. English proficiency is a tremendous asset and indeed, in some cases, a necessary skill if one is to work successfully in places such as Luxembourg, Tokyo, Pretoria, Abu Dhabi, or Ontario. The English proficiency can be gained as a result of US study, and that is one reason that American higher education is a wise investment.

 

In summary, studying in the US is an opportunity well worth pursuing. As Secretary of Education, I would like to heartily encourage foreign students to further investigate the possibility of an American Education

University Approval and Student VISA

 

After All, if the university gives student the admission to study the program you applied for, they will send student a form I-20A-B, which is the legal form that denotes that you are admitted & eligible for applying Visa. The immigration laws of the United States permit foreign students to come to the U.S. to attend school at many academic levels. U.S. schools can get authorization from the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to admit foreign students and to issue documentation allowing students to obtain F-1 non immigrant student visa classification. This document is called the I-20 form. Upon receipt of the I-20, an application to INS for the F-1 visa is filed.

 

There are mainly two types of non-immigrant student visas. They are F-1 Visa and J-1 Visa. Make sure which Visa you will be entitled to, before applying for one. Dependents are allowed to accompany students, and may be granted F-2/ J-2 visa classification. A foreign student in the F-1 classification may stay in the U.S. for extended periods of time to complete degrees or continuing education, and even may be allowed to work in the United States.

Getting the VISA

 

Now coming to getting a Visa, Visa issuance is a very objective decision, and is not subjective: Every visa official has a list of requirements s/he looks for in a visa application. If they are met, then s/he issues the visa. If not, s/he doesn t. It is how these requirements are met that makes a visa decision seem subjective. For instance, take the requirement of showing that you will return to your own country. If you provide unambiguous pragmatic evidence pointing to reasons for return, he will have no reason not to grant a visa. US Visa Official Quote: “Give a rational, objective reason that even a banker would believe”. If, on the other hand, you only play with words and have nothing substantial to show, it looks like a subjective decision, since it is based upon subjective evidence.

 

Presenting Proper documents alone doesn t determines your Visa. Visa officials know that documents in your country can be easily forged. So your paper documents alone is not enough. What you say, how you say it, matters a lot. Sometimes it can even make up for inadequate documentation. US Visa Official Quote: “Some people complain that we did not see their documents. Remember, if we go through your documents when you are standing there, then that is a negative sign. It means we don t believe you and are checking the documents for proof or for grounds to reject you. So not seeing your documents in front of you is a good thing for you.”

 

Combining both of the substantial points, we strongly convey that, proper documentation along with your good presentation before your Visa official on the interview day will determine your Visa.
