Academic fit and funding opportunities are important, but you should also prioritise institutions that you can call home for your university experience in the USA.
How you decide a university suits you is your decision, but here are a few things to think about:
- Location and cultural differences (by region and state, or outside the USA)
- Campus setting (urban, suburban or rural)
- Campus size (fewer than 1,000 students or more than 30,000)
- Academic environment (rigorous, competitive, inclusive, supportive etc)
- Extracurricular opportunities (clubs, societies, sports etc)
Each university has its own atmosphere, and it’s important to choose the best fit for you.
