Why Study in the U.S.

In the 20th and 21st centuries the U.S. has become the magnet for hundreds of thousands of bright, ambitious students around the world. The U.S. is the preferred destination for Indian students because U.S. higher educational institutions offer: academic excellence, cutting-edge technology, extensive support services for international students, generous funding opportunities, wide variety of educational options, flexible curricula and hands-on training (OPT and CPT).


In 2013-2014, 886,052 students from almost every country around the world studied at higher educational institutions in the U.S. In the same period, 102,673 students from India, which is 11.6% of all international students, studied on American campuses.
