The United States of America, the knowledge capital of the world and the poster boy of the salad bowl concept, is home to the world’s top universities. In spite of the high cost of education for international students while Studying in the USA education, itthe US remains the favorite destination for higher studies among Indian students. About 211703 Indian students were reported to be studying in the US as on July 18, 2018, according to GOI (Ministry of External Affairs). Approximately 28% of the world’s top 100 universities (QS ranking) are located in the U.S.

When compared to most of the higher education systems of the world, the American Higher education system is largely decentralized and free from federal government regulations. Small class sizes, highly accredited professors, and advanced technology and research capabilities in the US universities are the added advantages of studying in the country.

However, in our journey till now, we felt that there was no central source of accurate and comprehensive information about US universities available to the students who aspire to study in the country. As a result, while surfing through the study options available in the US, students end up spending a major chunk of their time in just gathering information, that too, from unreliable sources. To solve this, GyanDhan has launched University Pages for all the top universities in the USA which elaborate on their background, infrastructure, accommodation, faculty and pedagogy, financial aid, employment prospects, alumni, and location. Along with some quick facts about the universities, the pages also dwell upon the popular departments of the respective universities ranging from Engineering to Pure Sciences and cover important information such as the degrees offered, areas of research and expertise, costs involved and scholarship options available for popular subjects. Moreover, to ensure that not only you avail the information meticulously collated by our research team but also get the perspectives of other students on university application procedures and admissions, we have integrated different whatsapp groups and discussions pages of the respective universities with these pages.

Using the above search functionality, you can reach the pages of the universities of your choice & explore them. So far, we have covered 75 universities, and we will keep adding more to the list with time.
