AN INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED SYSTEM

The language barrier is often a drag on the decision to leave, but we know from experience that a basic level of English is more than enough to be able to cope with the local life. We would recommend this experience without hesitation. Furthermore, graduating with an American diploma will give you a head start on the competition.

AN INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED DEGREE

The American academic system offers internationally recognized degrees, including the MBA (Master Degree of Business Administration), which is the most renowned.

THE BACHELOR DEGREE:

The United States only offers one degree with four years of postsecondary education: the Bachelor. The latter is a second cycle curriculum composed of two distinct degrees:

  • The Bachelor of Arts: Literature, social sciences
  • The Bachelor of Science: Science, maths, technology and business

Students must complete a mandatory two years of higher education before being allowed to focus on their major during their last two years of studies. A student must complete four classes per semester (roughly 16 hours per week) to graduate in 4 years.

THE MASTER DEGREE:

It is a third cycle curriculum that you can obtain with one or two years of education after your Bachelor. It is composed of the same two degrees than the Bachelor.

The Master Degree is an internationally recognized degree and the MBA is undoubtedly the most renowned of them all. As a matter of fact, the biggest European companies massively recruit from MBA graduated students because teaching methods are known to be of exceptional quality.

THE AMERICAN COLLEGE SPORTS SYSTEM

Sports occupy a preponderant place in the American universities life.

FACILITIES

A large majority of American universities own a gym, a swimming-pool, tennis and basketball courts, a football pitch, a library, computer rooms and state-of-the-art housing. Everything is in place for all student-athletes to compete under the best possible conditions.

SPORTS TEAMS

The best universities compete at a very high level, and it is common to see some student-athletes take on the international stage once they’re done with their studies. However, the American college sports system is open to everyone and even students with more modest ambitions can find their place.

Coaches:

Coaches take care of the recruiting and the training sessions in addition to match coaching. Practices are held on a daily basis and last around 2 to 4 hours depending on the sport and the season. Team spirit and fighting spirit are among the fundamental values that are taught during practices. The professionalism of university teams is close to that of the best European sporting clubs.

UNIVERSITY TRIPS

The college season features different competitions (individual or collective), which are an opportunity for students to travel throughout the United States with their teams and discover fellow prestigious American universities. Trips are made by bus or plane, teams are accommodated in hotels and the universities cover all costs.
