Why study in USA
- The United States is the premier destination for international students because it has something for everyone. It offers a vast academic options and it is always possible to find the program that is a perfect match for the international student's interests. One can focus on a rather narrow area of a discipline or study a varied group of subjects – as per one’s requirements. The variety, flexibility and quality of American education are what draw students to the US in large numbers.


Quality of academic programs

The biggest reason for choosing to study in the US is the fact that the quality of instruction is unparalelled in the world. The infrastructure and research facilities at universities are world class and many of the faculty members are leading authorities in their field. In fact, graduate students in select schools have the opportunity to work directly with Nobel laureates.


Experiential learning

The system relies on comprehension with little emphasis on rote learning. Along with this, there are opportunities for practical training integrated within the program thereby allowing students to obtain hands-on experience. Students are allowed to work on campus for up to 20 hours per week when school is in session and for up to 40 hours per week during holidays. The stipulation is that international students need to be enrolled for a full-time course of study. International students are not allowed to work off-campus, without special permission from the United States Government. Most degree programs offer international students at least 12 months of practical training upon completion of their program. This means that students are allowed to seek employment off-campus, in a company, generally in their area of interest.



The US educational system boasts of tremendous flexibility, both in terms of choice of courses and the design of one’s individual educational experience. It is possible to start a major in one discipline and move into another field by the end of the first two years of education.Also, since one graduates only upon completion of a certain number of credits, it is possible to graduate ahead of schedule or even add courses in another field of interest to graduate with a double major.


Cutting-Edge Technology

US universities pride themselves on being at the forefront of technology and educational techniques, and in making available to their students the best possible equipment and resources. Most programs incorporate the latest technology into their curriculum helping students gain skills in using the latest technology.


Campus experience

Living on campus is an important feature of the US educational system. This experience teaches one to be independent and encourages one to learn how to co-exist in harmony.  


Global Education
Experience in an international setting is a marketable commodity. Your long-term career prospects can be enhanced through self-confidence, independence and cross-cultural skills - attributes in demand by employees world-wide.


Worldwide recognition

Good programs in the US have to earn their accreditation by meeting certain criteria, and this ensures quality education, as well as a degree or certificate that is recognized. Hence, most good US degrees enjoy credibility in the world.

I wish to become a Neurosurgeon, but first I wish to practice in the United States or Singapore for half of my career and to spend last half of my career in India. Whether my wish is a good one? Is it possible? Is my decision is correct? Kindly commend on my wish?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 7th Apr, 2020

Raja, we have been discussing your career and aspirations for a while now and we appreciate that you want to take Career360's opinion on the matter of your career. So by now, you are aware of the fact what it takes to become a neurosurgeon and what it is to clear USMLE, practise as a resident in the US. We also have discussed the life style and the salary part. Now regarding the first half and later half of the career, we only wish we could predict our timeline on this planet. We do not which might be the first half or which might be the later part. But no wish is bad. If you want to achieve something, you should lest you regret for the rest of your lofe. Now to practise in the US, you may have to appear for USMLE, clear the step 1 and then practise as a resident before you can get the license to practise as a full time neurosurgeon. That is a long process that might take good 4-5 years. You study MBBS in India for 50 months and then complete the 1 year rotational internship and it takes you as many as 5 years. And appearing for USMLE and then working as a resident take another 4 years and so 10 years of your life are spent getting a valid license to practise in the US. And then lets say after 5 years you want to move to Singapore, that takes a whole different processing because you need to appear for their license exam. And you work in Singapore for lets say another 5 years and you come back to India. 15 years of your life are spent studying and getting licenses. But the beauty is within 15 years you can actually get license to practise in 3 countries. So you need to take a call. Or how about you finish MBBS in India, move to Singapore to study your MD/MS and plan on moving to the US? That way the transition is going to be smoother.


Is there any age limit to take admission into Ph.D in USA?

lakshita shaan 3rd Apr, 2020
Hey vasu,
The age limit which almost every University demands is 35 years. If anybody is above that they can might miss the chance to get enroll theirselves for phd.
This age is decided because phd is all about researching and writing ,they usually demand people who is also iinvolved in academics and departmental works.
Good luck!

Are Neurosurgeons happy in New York?

Manish Singh 2nd Apr, 2020

It will all depend upon the lifestyle and the office hours you put in the work. The number of opd days, OT days and the visit to the wards for rounds. It all affect the free time period for a doctor. In USA,you have to pay tax for the services thus it can be little less than what you make in india
