WHY SELECT AMERICAN EDUCATION?

Why select American Higher Education? The answer is simple. An American education is simply the best choice for building a successful future.
The World’s No. 1 Study Destination
Because of its colonial history, many Sri Lankans view British education as the most popular education choice for international students. The truth of the matter is that America is the world’s No. 1 destination for international students. More than ONE MILLION international students study in the USA annually. This has included tens of thousands of students from the UK, Australia, Canada and European countries, not just students from developing countries. Why do you think this is so? It is because of the quality of American education and the opportunities an American degree affords students from every country in the World.
The features of American Education
According to the Times Education Supplement ranking (UK), seven of the world’s Top 10 universities are American – think about this – that’s a massive 70%. This is due in no small part to the “DNA” of American education. American education is characterised as based on “continual assessment” and career orientation, not rote memorisation and exams.
American students learn not only how to solve the problem, but how to apply the answer and effectively communicate this to others. American education is interactive with students fully engaged in the education process, not merely passive listeners or exam takers. American education teaches students to truly think and ensures that when they graduate they are “job ready”!
American innovation
Technology plays an increasingly important role in American education. Nearly all students will use the latest education technology to connect through the Internet. Professors can deliver the latest up-to-date information.
Students can submit assignments and other work online – convenient and in a richer format that printed paper. Online libraries bring the entire world to a notebook or tablet.
Real world activities, including corporate visits, business visitors, study tours and more expose students to the real world of their subject area. Student development is enhanced through ongoing career coaching and resources for personal development. Students also “fine-tune” their degree through the choice of elective subjects rather than following a “one size fits all” standardised curriculum. Extra-curricular activities are a vital part of the American education experience and further enhance students’ ability to use their education in the real world and broaden them as individuals.
A Future-Focused approach to education means that students are not focused on yesterday and past papers, but rather tomorrow and the future. The world is ever changing and American higher education prepares graduates for life-long learning and development by teaching them how to learn, not just having them memorise a single set of facts.
American education is future-focused quality with an emphasis on soft-skills as well as academics to ensure holistic development of the individual and develop maximum life-long career potential.
