Study in USA

You can seek a bachelor’s degree in the US after high school. Completing the degree takes 3-4 years, depending on how many courses are studied each year. This page lists a few examples of the study fields. In the universities' profiles section you can find more degrees available.

You can choose from a number of universities and there is a wide spectrum of options. There are also a lot of options that, for example, Finnish universities do not have, especially the number of study fields. The Finnish universities have small student quotas and strict entrance exams. It is easier to get into American universities. When you get accepted to an American college you can choose any of the available major subjects.

Student life

Although the most important thing at universities, obviously, is learning, student activities can be seen as the funnest aspect when it comes to studying in the US. All of the campuses have a lot of leisure time activities to offer. Everybody can find something for him/herself – no one is left out. For example, a student can join a variety of clubs, organizations or sports teams. All of these are great ways to meet new people. Music, theater, dance and visual arts activities are some examples and the list goes on and on.

The campuses host many entertaining parties, dances, concerts and charity events. Universities’ sports teams’ games are big events that students gather to follow. The biggest universities have more than 100,000 spectators at their home games. Events include student tickets with low-cost prices or even free of charge.

Students usually live at least the first year on campus in the university dormitories or in shared flats. Dormitories are good, but often renting an common apartment with friends is perceived as a better alternative. Renting a common single-family house may be cheaper than a dormitory.

The sense of community and pride for the university comes up in many ways in daily life. The university colors can be seen everywhere, "school spirit" comes up often and the university logo is the most common thing you will see printed on everybody’s T-shirt. New students will receive a warm welcome in the beginning of the school year. There will be orientation events and a lot of events to engage.

Students' sense of community also extends to the post-student life. When you graduate, you will be part of the university alumni. The university alumni network is a great way to find a job or just keep in touch with old friends. The annual Homecoming event, which is held each fall, is a great venue to meet with old and new friends, party, network and reminisce.
