A young experiment with democracy and a shared national love for fried food, the United States has a long, unique history, especially with producing some of our favorite films and television shows. Add in an enthusiastic love for baseball and (American) football, and you’d come close to arriving at the image of American culture. The U.S. is a massive place, with each state containing its own history; and when you’re going from one side to another, it feels as if you’re going from planet to planet. International students from all over the world look for options in the U.S., and travelers and explorers are often looking to find out whether Americans are as loud and silly as they are on television (spoiler: they are). Being a student, though, brings you in contact with the top-ranked and largest universities in the world, and they are ready to welcome students like you every year. You only need to look at the university rankings to see that U.S. universities dominate the lists of the best universities in the world. But, if you’re inclined to ignore these rankings, you can also be easily astounded by the sheer number of accredited universities all over the U.S. In fact, according to the Association of American Colleges and Universities, there are 2,613 accredited four-year colleges and universities in the U.S.! Holy cow! In the U.S., secondary schools are divided into different categories: research universities, community colleges, liberal arts colleges, and vocational schools. Depending on your needs, these different colleges and institutions have something to offer you. Most commonly, however, if you’re looking for a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree, you’re probably looking for either a research university or a liberal arts college. At any university in the U.S., they are interested in welcoming students from everywhere in the world. The classes are all delivered in English, and the universities offer extra help and assistance to students who are travelling from other countries. And, though the majority of Americans speak English, there is no official national language in the U.S.

To apply to study in the U.S., you’ll need to provide proof you have a diploma for your English proficiency, such as a IELTS or TOEFL certificate.

To study in English at one of the universities in the United States, you may need a proof of English proficiency. There are several standardised English tests that you can take to proof your English level, such as the PTE (Pearson Test of English), TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), CAE (Cambridge Advanced English) and IELTS (International English Language Testing System), offered by British Council and IDP. IELTS is the most popular of these tests, with British Council offering more than 500 test locations and being accepted by more than 9,000 organisations world-wide.

  • I took the IELTS test, because I found that it is the only one that is being asked in every country. I had planned to send more applications to other universities in different countries in case I wasn’t accepted.

  • Comparing language tests I think it is better to take the IELTS test because the speaking part is evaluated by doing a face-to-face interview.

  • I took the IELST test which was a rewarding experience and the first challenging step to prove I was capable to study abroad.

  • More than 800 British Council test locations
  • Accepted by more than 9,000 institutions
  • More than 2.5 million tests taken last year
