Bachelor’s education – USA or Europe?

a

Given the stark differences between the education systems in USA and Europe and the lack of proper information to study (at the Bachelor’s level) in Europe, it is important to know facts about studying in either of these locations.

General Education is considered as ‘essential’ in US universities, which covers a broad range of programs such as Music, photography, sports and many other co-curricular and extra-curricular fields of activity. This will impart a strong base of students to study a wide range of programs – not only those that are academically important, but also personally interesting. Additionally, general education emphasizes skills such as writing and critical thinking and expose students to a variety of subject areas. Also, students can choose a major after two years of studying, in the meanwhile explore their field of interest.

In European countries, this type of general education is not available and students who are joining the Bachelor’s programs are expected to ‘choose’ a focus area while applying for colleges. This will severely restrict the learning capability of students who may want to explore more areas and wider fields of learning to decide on their career direction.  While it helps to choose a subject from the start and able to focus on those areas in-depth and prepare for the job market or for continuing onto a master’s degree, it also has its disadvantages”.

European bachelor’s degrees are three-year programs that are too structured, which doesn’t give students a lot of freedom to explore.

Also, ‘liberal arts’ education emphasizing on learning in subjects such as social sciences, arts, and humanities are available in all US universities/colleges, whereas European universities rarely offer such an option. This restricts the learning ability and choice of students, who want to explore multiple options before they decide on a particular ‘major’ or specialization to continue with their studies. Of course, for international students who are ready with a focus, going for a 3-year degree, directly into their chosen field of study could be an advantage.

Another advantage is US colleges is the scope to internationalize their learning, participation in various events through student-clubs and a better campus life. Comparatively, European colleges offer limited scope for such wider participation and exposure.

Most importantly, except in the UK, almost all other countries offer education in their native language (non-English), which is a major deterrent for Bachelor’s applicants. While most European universities are offering Master’s level education in English, very few are offering at the Bachelor’s level. Such problem does not exist in US universities since the medium of education is only English.

Finally, for those international students with merit, financial aid is possible even at the Bachelor’s level in most US universities. Though rare and difficult, funding is a good possibility for top-performing students here. Whereas, in Europe, financial aid is virtually difficult, if not impossible.

It is therefore important for international students to choose the country/continent to make a very informed decision to invest huge sums of money into their education and ultimately their career.

Love Manhattan –

Higher Education- US is still the best destination

The US is still the best destination for higher education as it promises bright future. The expansive global base it carries is indispensable. It is still on the increase. It is expanding in quick succession. There is a big rise in the admission to the schools and colleges in the US. The dominance of science and engineering remains the same. Therefore, the filling of seats in Science, Technology, and Engineering is in unabated.

The alluring prospects of studying in the US is due to the updating of new technologies from time to time. It has taken a giant leap. The infrastructure, new designs, and reinforcements are the improvements that meet student demands in today’s higher education industry. Both big and small universities are competing with one another to start new graduate courses. Latest reports from the global education market state that 8 out 10 student’s are seeking a visa for graduation in the US.

The above fact reflects that the demand for higher education in the US is in the ascending order. This goes to prove that the US is still the best destination for student’s to study abroad. The percentage is going double in the coming days. This augurs well for the student community. The most beneficial thing about it those big opportunities are there for science and engineering. Indeed, it is effectively engaging new admission in higher education.

The support from the alumni is another reason why higher education in the US is still the best. The good ranking of the colleges and B-schools in the US still remains the same. The strong encouragement the students get in research opportunities is the best worldwide. The financial aid and scholarship in the US are extremely well structured. It opens several options for the students. It reduces the burden on the parents. The demand is spiraling as never before. A positive direction for achievement of educational goals lies in the US.

The ecological surroundings of the university campus is another place where nature dwells within your reach. The environment in the classrooms is full of knowledge expression of the highest kind. The faculty is upbeat and cheerful. They create an optimistic atmosphere between them and the students. This adds freedom to open up in freely expressing the doubts that arise during a lecture on subject issues. The weakness of a student is not ridiculed. This encourages the individual to pursue his dream with persistence, determination and infinite energy.

The excellent thinking and ability to understand student’s is found very clearly in the universities in US.  This increases the penchant for knowledge grasping to take of your career ambitions to a career high. The social outlook is a great source of motivation for the student community. The capacity of adapting to the new and challenging environment, including extra-curricular activities is an added bomus. In Harvard University, which is one of the most prestigious educational institutions in the world, their teaching focuses on learning in a happy atmosphere and how.

A class on positive psychological science where the teaching is done by Ben Shahar, draws 1400 student’s per semester. Twenty per cent of graduates in Harvard get enrolled in this optional course. Ben is popular as a “Happiness guru” who concentrates on making life quality improved personally. As per what Ben has to say, the lecture in the class is on positivity: happiness, self-esteem and motivation. They give the student’s weapons to confront life with nore joy. He gives these tools to be more successful than your peers.

For example:

Focus on good things

Fear God

Practice physical activities

Look attractively

Eat Healthy

Be assertive

Fill your desk, room, and computer with beautiful memories

Spend money on travel and shopping

Be nice to other people Greet with a smile

Greet with a smile

Listen to music

Face challenges

Leadership and volunteering are given recognition in US universities. Volunteering involves social service of any kind. Hospital visits, motivating a fellow student on the campus. If you are chosen as leader, you can be given the task of serving as an executive or board president in your academic or social fellowship. These are priorities that distinguish universities in the US to prove that it is still the best destination for higher education. The bottom line is that US universities show you the zeal to be successful in reaching your goals.

USA – Study, training and Work: Latest updates

USA - Study, training and Work- Latest updates

There are a lot of misconceptions and rumors that are circulating amongst the international student community, who wish to study and later work in USA.

In this Newsletter, we are looking at the ‘actual’ and practical information given by successful applicants for USA H1B Visa.

Quite a few Indian applicants who have studied their Master’s in USA and have been working in the USA after their Optional Practical Training have visited India in recent times and applied for H1B Visa.

Almost all the applicants have their H1B visas approved for THREE YEARS.

From our conversation with some of them, it was clear that the visa interview was mostly about if they (the applicant) had studied in USA and working with a company directly, instead of through consultants.

Also, there was a discussion with the US Consulate staff, in one of the popular news channels. The officials have categorically stated that there will be absolutely no problem for students to study and work in USA.

What does all this mean?

  • For genuine students who want to obtain international qualifications from USA, the doors are always open.
  • There are NO RESTRICTIONS on students to obtain Curricular Practical Training (CPT) or Optional Practical Training (OPT) at all. In other words, no changes in law have been envisaged for CPT or OPT.
  • If the students obtain an American Degree in USA, they will be eligible to apply for H1B visa. As per a proposal, applicants who study in USA will be preferred for the H1B visa
  • Since there will be no lottery system from next year (2018) and the number of applicants will be restricted, it becomes easier for applicants to get their H1B easier than now!
  • With a H1B visa on hand, one can work for three years initially and extend it for another three years as per present rules.

So, study in USA to get a world-class degree and gain practical work experience and employment for a very BRIGHT FUTURE!

Work opportunities in USA

This is a ‘special’ Newsletter, especially and exclusively on work visas (H1B) in USA.

After going through all the news items on what USA could ‘do’ for students during and after their education, we thought it right to give you an unbiased update about employment opportunities with a H1B visa (work visa) after education.

Study in US

As you all know, every year there are about 85,000 visas for H1B workers from other countries. Out of this, 65,000 are for those in the General pool and the balance 20,000 are earmarked (rather, computer-marked) under ‘advanced’ category, for those who study in USA. Since there are more applicants than the available visas in both these categories, there is a “pick up” system based on a lottery. If someone’s name is picked up, he would get the H1B visa. That is how it has been working till now.

Now, the new Government plans to offer (grant) the H1B visas based on merit alone. Trump administration is looking to change this. The idea is that in the event when the number of applications exceeds the number of available slots, applications will be prioritized based on the applicant’s profile. Currently, two main criteria are being considered: whether an applicant has U.S. educational degree and what salary s/he is going to be paid. Trump’s administration is hoping that this will help keep the best and the brightest in the country and send everyone else home.

In other words, those who have the best possible education and are brightest will have the opportunity to get a work visa than based on chance. Full details are yet to be worked out. But it is hoped that by the time the next season starts on 1st April, the rules will be clearer and more definitive.

In the meantime, don’t fret over whether USA is right for you or not. Irrespective of anything and everything, BEST possible education is available in USA and employment opportunities are available both part-time and full-time during and after your education. And, for those with an American degree, opportunities are much wider throughout the world.

Fall deadlines are very close. If you delay applying with a lot of contemplation about new rules, you will miss the flight for this semester. For your own sake and to get the brightest education and experience, come and start your process at Manhattan Review without delay.

As always, we will be with you all the way.
