In the USA Unis section, we examine in detail some of the many excellent colleges America has to offer. In choosing which schools to write about, we have considered a wide range of criteria.
We examine the sheer breadth of options
We look at vast state universities and small liberal arts colleges. We examine institutions on the East Coast, on the West Coast and those scattered in between. We look at places that produce artists and places that produce nuclear scientists.
We look at the oldest of American colleges and at ones that are only just beginning to make a splash.
We haven't looked at every possible choice, but we hope we have provided an insight into most of the different types available...and highlighted the best across the board.
There are certain qualities that the institutions we have chosen have in common.
We have tried to cover universities that combine good academic reputations with
- sizeable international populations;
- financial aid offered , in one form or another, to international applicants;
- reasonable access to and from Gatwick and Heathrow;
- and where possible, sunshine!
But this is just the beginning.
We hope this guide is helpful to you, not as a comprehensive list of the places you should consider, but as a place to begin - and that the reviews provide insight into the workings of these unis.
