Study in the USA: 5 reasons why I chose AMERICAN Universities

October 9, 2019 100 By Stanley Isaacs


Hello guys and welcome to my channel Today I wan to share 5 reasons why I decided to apply to American Universities instead of going to study in other countries. Now these reasons would vary from one person to another because this is my video I wanted to share my five reasons. The first reason is being in the centre of the world. You can say so I can compare with studying in Germany When I was in Germany I thought that everything was comfortable everything was nice and easy scheduled I had free weekends when everything was closed I had days when I had to study in the university But at the same time I didn’ have a feeling that I am in the centre of events. I thought like everything else is happening somewhere else not where I am right now. When I travelled to United States in 2013 I realised this is where the centre of the world is. Every day we’re using Facebook, which is headquatered in California, every day we use Apple which is headquatered in California. We use google. Which is headquatered in California. There’s MIT. where they develop the newest thing we’re going to use in 20-30 years And I thought yes this is the place where the future is born and for me as an active and innovative person this is really important to be where things are happening and where the future is born The second reason is funding Now I know many of you are dreaming of studyimg in Great Brtain Believe me, I’ve been there when I was 14 I traveled to the UK for he first time And I thought this is the country where I want to live in And this is the country where I want to study Oxford and Cambridge are basically the best universities in the world. Then I started researching my options in terms of funding because my parents told me we’re never gonna give you 60 K in pounds to study in the UK So you have to figure out yourself I started researching The only steep-end scholarship was Chevening scholarship It was so complicated I thought I would never be eligible for it. I just left my dream of studying abroad before 2014 when I was scrolling through my Facebook feed I saw a story of a girl who got full financial aid to study in the United States I was like is it even possible? Studyimg in the USA is also very expensive if we take top American Universities and Master’s degree the minimum tuition fee would be like $ 60 K a year and that’s just tuition fees. Then I started my own research on funding from American Universities I realised there are several funding options that you can choose assistanship when you work on American campus, University compensates your tuition fees and housing. There’s scholarship which is the best when you get money and continue study. There are fellowships and work/study programs if you guys want to see a full video on financial aid in the American Universities I’ll leave a link below I made a whole video of how I got full funding to do my MBA and Master’s in the USA. The third thing about studying in the USA which really applies to me you’d have a lot of prominent lecturers coming to your University and telling you what’s happening in the world. I got my first degree in Russia What I noticed is that we were taught economics by people who were born and raised in the Soviet Union. Soviet Union and Modern Economics have nothing to do with each other I was suprised that people who have never ever traided on financial markets actually taught us how to do that. In America it’s completely different For example, in Stanford you’d have Elon Mask or Peter Thiel who are the best enterpreneurs in the world right now. You’ll have them giving lectures to students who study enterpreneurship. You’ll have Tim Ferris in Columbia He wrote a book how to be productive and how to work 4 hours a week. I’ll leave a link below because I’m reading this book right now and it’s changing my life completely You’ll have these people who actually have real life experience teaching subjects It’s really important for any sphere America is one of the best countries in terms of having great people teaching students. The fourth thing which is important for everyone how much money will you get after you graduate If we take top American business schools, for example the average salary would be around 100 000 $ and this is really amazing. It differs from one subjest to another and if you’re a teacher you won’t be getting that much money. If you’re doing anything connected with science, business, I think there are great opportunities in America. I have a couple of friends kind of friends adult friends professors in American Universities and they live a happy life If you want to become a professor in the United States, you’d have 4 years of work and then 1 year of travelling. I don’t remember the word. If you know the word, please write it down. In the comments. They have this freedom amd they have resources to to conduct research and phD students working for them. Opportunities after you graduate from American Universities are bigger than in other countries And the last thing but not the least If you’re international student like me you’d be interested in staying in the country where you got education. and applyig what you’ve learned in real life. Now in Great Briatain it’s almost impossible right now you have to pack your bags in 3 months after you graduate. In America it’s easier If you graduated from an American University, got an American degree, you’re eligible for OPT which is 1 or 3 years. You can stay in the United States, apply what you’ve learned. If you’re studyimg STEM, subjects like technical, engeenering, mathematics. You get up to 3 years. This is great. There’s be an opportunity for you to find an employer if you want to stay in the United States. If you just want to get work experience in the States, which is considered everywhere in the world as one of the best then you have this opportunity and you don’t have to go home after you finish university. These are my 5 reasons to study in the USA. I hope you guys enjoyed this video. If you want to add something please comment below.
