Why American University after A/Levels


How to get the most from your A/Levels

An American university education is undeniably one of the best and most affordable international options for students in today’s globally competitive world, making it an excellent choice for A/Level students. This is a matter of fact and not one of opinion. Both students and parents must be aware of the factors that make this so. American university helps students get the most from their hard-earned A/Levels.


American Higher Education offers the best in global education excellence.

Respected international rankings ranging from the UK’s Times Education Supplement to US News & World Report and Newsweek American universities are preeminent. The Times (UK) 2012-2013 World University Rankings places 4 American universities in the World’s Top 5 Universities and 15 in the Top 20. American universities clearly dominate world education and the US remains the world’s No. 1 destination for international students, even from developed countries. It should come as no surprise that every year tens of thousands of students from Australia, the UK, and Canada make America their preferred study choice.


Sri Lankan students who have invested 2 to 3 years of their lives in A/Level education clearly deserve the best option. Why else would they have done A/Levels? Unknown to most A/Level students and their parents is the fact that many American universities will grant credit for selected A/Level courses. Getting the right advice and doing the right research can help students maximize the value of their A/Levels.


American Higher Education is outstanding value and offers affordable quality.

Current exchange rates make the US dollar highly competitive when compared to the Australian dollar, UK Pound, and Canadian dollar. Parents will find it much easier to manage the investment required for a high quality education in America. America is also recognized internationally as a having a lower cost of living – food, automobiles, housing, and other essentials are much more affordable for students. Furthermore, options like American University Transfer Programs can further significantly reduce the cost and duration of study in the US while increasing the chances of a scholarship. In fact, students can even complete certain US Bachelor Degrees entirely in Sri Lanka.

Last year there was nearly $1Billion available in scholarships in the US. Much of this was available to international students.


Experience the world’s most dynamic and multicultural society

Students will learn as much from America itself as they do from their university classrooms. According to a recent edition of The Economist’s “Pocket World in Figures”, a leading British publication, America holds the following leadership positions

No. 1 for Nobel Prize winners since 1901
No. 1 Global Economy
No. 2 for resident patents issues
No. 1 for Global Competitiveness
No. 1 for Industrial Output
No. 1 for Manufacturing Output
No. 1 for Innovation

American Higher Education takes place in a vibrant, dynamic society and America’s approach to education maximizes the benefits for students through campus research, work experience, internships, university projects, and the OPT (Optional Practical Training) program for graduates.


Students will enjoy a fantastic student life in the US including on-campus employment opportunities

American university campuses offer students a life-enriching environment to mature, refine social skills with students from around the world, expand their personal interests, and enjoy themselves. Students can also apply for on-campus employment up to 20 hours per week, usually earning between $8 and $12 per hour. Since the cost of living in the US is lower, such income can help them manage living expenses, entertainment, travel, and even buying a used car. Students have ample holidays to allow them to travel in the US and enjoy one of the world’s leading tourist destinations at the same time they learn more about the country’s history, culture, and society. Their student life in the US will create opportunities that will last a lifetime, as will their memories of their friends and experiences.


Opportunities abound for US graduates in every field

American degrees are recognized globally and open up career opportunities for graduates all around the world. The Optional Practical Training (OPT) program allows graduates to gain work experience in their career field in the US, giving them BOTH education and experience. This powerful combination makes US graduates highly sought after by companies and organizations worldwide.


Nearly 4,000 universities in 50 states give students and parents unequalled choice

With a population over 300 million in 50 states, the US is a culturally and geographically diverse country. With approximately 4,000 universities and colleges students can choose the university, the program, and the location they want to experience.


America’s career-focused, interactive Higher Education combines the best of academic theory and real-life practical experience
American university education is different and its differences have helped America become the No. 1 destination for International Students. American university education is not exam-based. Students are evaluated based on a process of continual assessment that includes assignments, projects, participation, as well as tests/exams. This ensures that students are focused on learning and acquiring knowledge for a career, not just memorizing for an exam. American university education is also a unique combination of classroom academic theory and real-life practical experience as the result of its interactive, career-focused approach. Close work with business, industry, and organizations ensure that students are prepared for the “real world” and are “enabled for success” in whatever field they have chosen.
