List Of Universities In USA

Postgraduate courses at Graduate School in the USA are a focused study compared to the undergraduate level
and the subject area is far more important in the rankings than the overall national ranking of the institution when looking at American universities. 

Tuition Fees & Costs

Universities in the USA are required to publish their Cost of Attendance on their website. This gives a good guide to the cost of tuition as well as the cost of living in the local area. As an international student you will find that tuition fees vary between institutions and can depend on a number of factors including the reputation of university to demand to attend the university. Tuition fees can be anywhere between $59,430 at Columbia University to $10,514 for out-of-state students at the University of Southern Mississippi. 

Applications & Admissions

To be successful in your application for a US university you will need a first degree in a relevant subject area and if your first degree is not from an English speaking university, then you will need to prove your English language skills. Universities in the USA often used standardised testing for entrance, so if you wish to study a masters program in law or medicine or even business you will often need to complete a test. The GMAT covers management and business-related courses, the LSAT is for entry into law school and MCAT is for medical school. 


Student Life at Grad School in the USA

Students in the USA are career focused and this is doubly so at Grad School. By the time students have completed their first degree and moved onto postgraduate study, they have a clear idea of what they want from their career. The relatively high tuition fees and private loans that many students need to use to attend a university in the United States also help to concentrate their minds. Universities in the USA often have large sports teams and plenty of campus-based activities to be enjoyed.
