US Government Is Taking Steps To Reduce Tuition Costs

The US government is taking measures to cut down its tuition costs for higher education, in order to address the increased competition, it is facing from countries like Canada, Australia, Ireland and Singapore in attracting students from countries like India and China.

Initiatives To Attract Indian Students To Study In USA

The government of the United States has taken a number of initiatives to attract and retain students from India. The most prominent among them is the newly launched 2+2 undergraduate degree program, that allows a student to study at a community college for the first two years of his course and pay a much lower fee and then go on to the actual university, which will grant him the degree for the final two years of his course.

The quality of education provided by the community colleges has also been improved and a student who studies in these colleges can gain the advantage of getting best quality higher education at a significantly lower cost.

Many community colleges have also fostered a partnership with some of the best-ranked universities in order to provide students with the opportunity to join top courses at a significantly lower cost than what was traditionally paid.

Another added advantage of this would be that the student would get to study in two different colleges and thus experience more diversity during their sojourn in the country.

Canada has been one of the market leaders in education for decades. However, what currently sets Maple Country apart is immigration.

We get this question a lot. Many candidates know which career path they want to take, but are at a loss for how to take that journey. Understanding the job role and the industry that you want to get into is the first step to picking the right university.
