Why study in the us?

Studying in the US may be an appealing option, but you are so far from home and costs can be higher, so how do you decide between studying in the Netherlands or the US? Here are some reasons why the US is still the most popular educational destination for international students from around the world.

Academic Flexibility

In the US, students can choose from a number of courses and the education system does not categorize students. Students in the US can choose between a two or four-year college program. Moreover, a bachelor’s degree offers a broader range of general knowledge through a wide range of courses, personal development and academic skills. Students focus on a specific direction during the second phase of their study. More choice is available by combining programs, for example you could graduate in liberal arts, with a major in science, etc.
