In light of recent events, South African universities have been hurled into the spotlight amid the “Fees Must Fall” campaign that has swept the nation. Here at USA Scholarships, we have been inundated with questions from concerned parents regarding the future of South African education. Unfortunately, I do not have a crystal ball and cannot predict the future but, at this time, South Africa has some excellent universities. These universities are rated amongst the best in the world, producing groundbreaking research and providing learners with internationally recognised degrees.
The USA, however; has one advantage over South Africa, “Greater Choice”. The United States is home to 16 of the top 20 universities in the world and has close to 5000 universities and colleges in total. Almost all of these universities allow students to study two degrees’, known as having a Double Major, (e.g., Finance and Animation). Students who are Double Majors, can complete this type of degree in one five-year period. USA Students are also required to take “electives”. Electives are subjects outside of a students’ field of study, and are implemented to provide them with experience in a variety of industries. American degrees are a highly marketable commodity. Many global employers seek knowledgeable international graduates who can conduct business across different cultures and languages.
If you are worried about the cost of USA Universities, you can sign up with us for an Athletic scholarship evaluation at www.usascholarships.co.za. If you are an academic, many USA based colleges and universities offer financial aid for academic students, open to Internationals and Americans alike. Students may apply directly for academic and need based financial aid. It is important to note that if you secure financial aid or a sports scholarship, these funds do not have to be repaid upon completion of your degree.
