Congratulations on your Graduation! Now that you have completed your undergraduate degree program in the USA, you now have many options and avenues that you can go down and each option has its own merits and demerits. Choosing the right option will involve a large amount of research and will come down to personal preference - but hopefully the information in our graduate study guide will help you, and point you in the right direction to choose the next step in your international education adventure.
For most students, the lure of visiting a grad school in the USA and obtain your masters or PhD can be too strong to resist. The USA has some of the very best graduate schools in the whole world, but attending them can be costly, hard to get a place to study and will involve a large amount of hard work.
Now that you have graduated, you will need to make sure you are in compliance with your student visa. You can find
out your visa options, and further information on how to stay in compliance with our visa options page for students
that have just graduated.
Most international students may find it hard to find employment as employers are often reluctant to deal with visa and immigration issues. There are ways around this and we can assist you to find the places to look for employers that are happy to employ international students.
Many students will want to return home to their home country, and use what they have learnt in the USA to help better their own country. However, moving back from the USA after a 4 year degree can be quite a shock to some students, so our returning home section will provide with helpful hints and tips to ease your transitition back home.
