Academics in the US

Higher education in the USA is a guarantee of excellence. The American degree integrates particularly well in today’s professional world and globalized context. Study conditions are facilitated by a low teacher/student ratio and personalized follow-up.

You only have to look at the world ranking of the best schools by discipline. According to the latest Times Higher Education rankings, North American schools have the highest number of places in the top 10 in the following major fields of study: “Business and Economics”, “Engineering and Technology”, “Humanities and Arts”, “Health”, “Life Sciences”, “Physical Sciences”, “Social Sciences” and “Computer Sciences”.

University sport in the US

In general, sport plays a major role in the lives of Americans and is closely linked to the school system. Indeed, unlike France and its club system, young Americans practice their sport(s) and participate in competitions through school.

Athletes are the pride and joy of their university and represent a showcase for it. Usually the ranking and reputation of a school goes hand in hand with the level of its sports teams.

This is why universities invest in athletes and infrastructure. Sports facilities on university campuses are outstanding and allow athletes to have everything they need on site. Also, universities offer sports support structures similar to those of the best European professional clubs (physiotherapists, physical trainers, cold baths, mental coaches, nutritionists, etc.).

The minimum requirement for higher education in the USA is the “bac” degree. You can go to study in the United States right after your senior year.

It is also possible for you to join an American university after having started a university course in France. All you need to do is transfer your subjects so that you don’t lose time and can continue your training in your specialization.

Different organizations such as the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) govern university sports and allow universities to offer sports scholarships. Note that there are no scholarships in junior high and high school.

This is a 4-hour computer-based test that evaluates your knowledge of English. It consists of 4 sections: Written & Oral Comprehension and Written & Oral Expression. The score required by universities generally varies between 61 and 80.

Also, the minimum score required for the SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) is required. The SAT is the test required of all university entrants, regardless of nationality. It evaluates the candidates’ knowledge of English and mathematics.
