FLEXIBLE EDUCATION SYSTEM

In the U.S., students spend the fist two years of their undergraduate degree completing General Eduction requirements, which comprises of classes in English, Mathematics and a self-selection of classes in Natural Science, Social Science and Humanities. This approach emphasises "breadth" and produces graduates who are knowledgeable on how the world functions. 

 

Students can defer their selection of a major to the second or even the third year of one's undergraduate degree. Students also have the option of adding on a minor or another major. This means that students can have a major in anything, and another minor / major in anything else. 

                    

OPTIONAL PRACTICAL TRAINING (OPT)

Having meaningful and relevant work experience is an important asset for graduates seeking to build their careers in the increasingly competitive global workplace. USA has produced countless influential brands, entrepreneurs and experts in multiple fields.  International students who complete their studies in the U.S. can apply for 12-month post-study work authorisation in the U.S. to gain paid work experience. Graduates of STEM degrees (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) can apply for a further 24-month STEM OPT Extension
