All within your reach. USA

International students researching their options for study are faced with numerous – often confusing – options and factors to consider. Do I want to live on the fast-paced East Coast or the Oscar-worthy West coast, home of Hollywood and the steep rugged hills of the Rockies? Do I want to study in a student town, or a more rural area to get closer to America’s southern history and soul food? We’re here to help you answer such questions, and ensure that the process of choosing a path for study is smoother and more intuitive for students, parents and counsellors alike.
