More international students study in the United States than any other country – and with good reason. While some of the world’s top institutions can be found in the US, there are also more than 4,000 world-class universities offering a top-notch education.
The US is the home of most of the world’s ground-breaking developments in technology, business, the arts and beyond.
Universities in the US offer the highest standards and have great reputations, and earning a degree from one carries significant prestige and career prospects. When choosing a university, it is important to select one with programs matching your abilities and goals.
IDP Education (Cambodia) has strong ties with many quality US institutions, and their trained counsellors work with students to determine which institutions offer the best fit for their goals, budget, qualifications and needs.
“IDP has given me advice and support in all areas of the process and been with me every step of the way,” said Hey Sery Waddanak, an international business major at the University of Massachusetts.
International students studying in the US can also work on campus for up to 20 hours a week, which can provide valuable work experience and help cover expenses while studying.
After graduation, students on an F-1 visa can apply for optional practical training (OPT), which allows them to work in their chosen field for 12 to 24 months after completing their studies.
Most US institutions also have a career services department staffed by professionals focused on assisting students with their CV, providing job-interview skills training and helping students find job opportunities in the US after they graduate.
Studying in the US also offers a huge range of lifestyle options and excellent campus security.
“Increasing numbers of Cambodian students are choosing to study in the US through IDP because of the wide range of benefits the experience brings,” said Cheap Piseth, chief counsellor at IDP Education (Cambodia).
