For students looking for a good education, American universities have always been a popular option. However, there are significant barriers for foreign students, with the largest one possibly cost.
Top universities are now seeking to diversify their student bodies, handing out scholarships and providing financial aid to good performers. There is new opportunity now as universities seek to gain global recognition and keep growth steady.
However, students may face cultural and logistical barriers, such as the social barrier of “not fitting in” or the fact that American standardized tests are not readily available in many foreign countries.
Still, students that choose to attend American schools gain a valuable experience, as the US is one of the global leaders in business, education, and technology.
