Colleges and universities across the USA are getting ready to welcome a new group of international students beginning in early 2011. If you were not able to begin your studies in the USA in the Fall, no problem. Classes that started in the Fall will end in December and brand new classes will start in January.
Beginning your American college or university program in the Winter or Spring has at least a couple of advantages over starting in the Fall. First, there are fewer new students starting in the Winter and Spring than in the Fall. This makes it faster and easier to get through the orientation, placement testing and class registration process. Second, you will be starting your program with more experienced international students who have already been through at least one term at the school. Their experience and knowledge about the school and its facilities and services will help you get adjusted and comfortable with your new environment more quickly and easily.
Depending on how prepared you are for your studies in America, there are many options available to you. If you still need to improve your English, there are many good Intensive English Programs that provide the kind of training needed to succeed in your academic studies and can secure your "conditional admission" to the college/ university before you arrive in the USA. If you successfully complete these Intensive English Programs, you may not need to take the TOEFL or IELTS exams.
If you are not ready to begin your program in January when most new school terms begin, there are many schools that offer later starting dates in March and April.
American Education Partners has successfully helped students from around the world find the American education programs that best meet their educational goals. We work on a personal level with each student and also work closely with each school to make sure the admission process goes quickly and smoothly.
If you are considering an American college or university program in early 2011, there is still time to apply to many schools. Contact our school placement team today to learn how we can help at: email@example.com
