Published on August 18, 2017

Are you dreaming of studying in the USA? Would you like to test your future course of study, get a taste of foreign air or get to know American campus life? With our college scholarship program, high costs are no longer a problem either.

You have the chance to take subjects that are not available in Germany and make new friends for life. The following five tips will guide you safely through your studies in the land of opportunity.

1. Find the college that suits you

You should think in advance about what is important to you when choosing your college. Reasons to choose a college can be on the one hand the academic offer and the facilities, on the other hand the sports offer, the clubs and leisure offers on campus.

Would you rather study at a private university in Chicago or at one of the best colleges on the west coast in the middle of Silicon Valley? The choice is entirely up to you!

2. Move into a dormitory

You don't know where you want to live yet? Then move into a "dorm", the typical American student accommodation. Most of the students there live directly on campus, either in double, multi-bed or single rooms. So you get to know like-minded people right away.

Another advantage is the short distances from your accommodation to the lectures, which means you can make the most of your time. Many students also spend their free time on campus, so you can quickly make friends.

3. Get involved in student clubs

The unique student life in the US has inspired many college films, and I'm sure you've seen a few. Would you also like to feel like in one of these films and integrate yourself on campus? No problem! There are many student associations and organizations in which you can get involved.

Are you interested in music, sports or politics? Almost all interests are represented in the various clubs. The range of cultural and sporting events is also huge - it is not uncommon for them to have their own concert halls or cinemas. And the party highlight of the year is of course the spring break!

4. Cheer for your team

Whether football, basketball or hockey: all students come together at sporting events to cheer on the university's own team. This always creates a happy and exuberant mood. The bond with your own sports teams is very strong at American colleges and you can therefore integrate yourself perfectly.

If your sporting activities go beyond cheering and cheering and you like to play sports yourself, then our sports scholarship might be just right for you.

5. Earn something extra

Would you like to earn something in addition to studying and the many leisure activities? That is also no problem! With the F1 visa, you can work on campus for up to 20 hours per week in your first year. Whether in the library, cafeteria or cafeteria - that's up to you. If you stay for two years, you can even take up an off-campus job.

Due to the unique student life on campus, you will have unforgettable experiences that no one can take away from you. The college scholarship program will help you make your dream come true. We wish you good luck!
