The United States has thousands of accredited colleges and universities renowned for quality, numerous programs of study, and flexibility to change fields of study and schools. The wide range of tuition and living costs makes the United States affordable for hundreds of thousands of international students each year. Whichever region you choose, you’re sure to find the right campus for you.

With a wide variety of areas of study as well as great diversity in the various campuses across the country, the United States is one of the most sought after places for higher education. In addition, there are many opportunities for financial aid and scholarship which would make it financially viable for more prospective students.


A good place to find information on studying in the United States is at the U.S. Embassy’s Educational Advising Center. An educational advisor is available to inform, advise, and guide students through the process of understanding the higher education system in the United States as well as choosing and applying to a college or university in the US. The Education USA Advising Center is located on the 4th Floor of the Rogers House Building, on President John Kennedy Street in Port Louis. The Center holds a general information session on two alternate Thursdays, monthly. This session is free and open to all who wish to attend, provided that we are contacted ahead of time.


The cost of living differs from state to state and even from cities to cities. Most universities recommend to spend the first semester living on campus in the dorms as it will facilitate the transition and offer some perspective as to how much to budget for every month.

Please remember some expenses such as:

  • Books
  • Transportation fees
  • Grocery shopping
  • Electricity
  • Health Insurance
  • Leisure and utilities
  • Rent
