The cost of studying in the USA
Studying in the USA can be expensive, with state colleges charging upwards of USD$23,000 or more per year and private colleges averaging USD$31,000 or more for an undergraduate bachelor’s degree.
If you’re after an Associate Degree, you can gain one at a public college starting at a much more affordable USD$3,300 per annum.
Post study employment options
The USA has strict employment rules, however skilled workers are in demand in the right industries.
The first step is to apply for a Green Card (or United States Lawful Permanent Residency) which gives the holder the right to both settle in the USA as well as work in paid employment.
For the experience of working in the USA without settling there permanently, you can also apply for work visas on a temporary, seasonal or exchange worker basis.
This requires a Work Visa, as well as permit to work, called an Employment Authorisation Document (EAD).Speak With Us Today
