Study in the USA with Navitas
When it comes to university-level education, no other country in the world inspires the academic respect and imagination as the USA. Names such as Harvard, Stanford, Princeton and MIT have become global education brands which have led the way for most of the past century. In the two most influential global university ranking indexes (The Times Higher Ed and the Shanghai Jiao Tong) , American universities have a near monopoly on the Top 10 places, with only Oxford and Cambridge challenging for a spot in the Top 10.
For international students, the USA is a huge draw card. A qualification from a US university can lead to all sorts of career opportunities back home.
Navitas offers a 'University Pathway Program' at five highly respected US universities. The Navitas University Pathway Program is an excellent option for international students who are looking for a more supportive learning environment in first year of studies at an American university. The combination of on-campus university study, in small classes and with more contact time with teachers and lecturers, is a great way to ensure you increase your chances of successfully completing your first year at university in the USA. Students who successfully complete the Navitas University Pathway Program go straight into Year 2 of their university degree.
Navitas also offers 'Pre-Masters' courses at some of its USA colleges. These one-semester programs provide the necessary preparation for entry into a Masters degree at a Navitas partner university in the USA.
