The tuition fees for studying in the USA are proportional to the quality of education, which can be relatively high compared to other countries. However, it is also a country with many high-value scholarship offers.
Scholarships in the USA are awarded automatically to students based on their standardized test scores (IELTS/TOEFL/SAT/SSAT), academic achievements, and extracurricular activities in the past three years. In addition to scholarships, students can also apply for financial aid from the school. For further details, parents or students can contact NEEC for more comprehensive consultation.
The USA offers Co-op programs (study and work programs, paid internships), but not all schools have them. Depending on the chosen field of study, NEEC will advise on schools with suitable Co-op programs. International students are only allowed to work on campus for 20 hours per week and are not permitted to work off-campus legally
Proving financial capability for studying abroad must demonstrate a logical correlation between monthly income and savings, the ability to cover tuition and living expenses throughout the period of study.
Proof of financial capability for studying abroad typically consists of three parts:
– Sufficient funds in a savings account to cover tuition and living expenses for the first year of study.
– Monthly income of the family or sponsor for the student.
– Family assets (real estate, land, business assets)
In the United States, there is a strong emphasis on prioritizing STEM fields, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and medical-related disciplines. However, the choice of what to study depends greatly on the abilities and interests of students. NEEC (presumably an educational institution or advisory body) will analyze and advise based on various criteria to provide optimal choices for students.
As a general principle in the United States, international students are not allowed to immigrate. However, they may be permitted to remain in the U.S. for a period after graduation if they obtain a work visa or participate in the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program.
– Work Visa: If international students are sponsored by large companies, they may be allowed to stay and work in the U.S. for up to 3 years and could potentially extend their stay for a maximum of 6 years. However, it is rare for individuals to meet the qualifications for this type of stay.
– Optional Practical Training (OPT) Program: International students may be allowed to stay an additional maximum of 1 year under this program to work directly related to the field of study they pursued.
