Reasons Non-Native Students Go to American Colleges

Every year, students from all over the world come to America seeking to further their education. The number of foreign students that come to the USA each year has grown significantly in recent years thanks to all the educational opportunities that this country has to offer. First , not all countries provide students with the possibility to fund their college education via scholarships or financial aid. Some institutions in the USA have agreements with foreign high schools to reward their students who graduate with excellent grades by offering to sponsor them in the process of obtaining a student visa that would allow them to come to this country legally and apply for a college education. Another reason why students come to America to study is to please their families. Many parents in some countries feel that a college degree earned in the USA would provide their children with more recognition in their society. Finally, the main reason I think that most international students come to this country is to do more with their lives than they've done so far. Successfully completing a college degree in the USA often puts them in good position for getting a high paying job in their home countries. In conclusion, I think that this country has a lot more to offer in terms of education than most foreign countries, hence the reason why international students come here to study.
