The best universities in the United States appear every year in the lists of the best in the world, such as those published by Times Higher Education or U.S. World News and Report. It is for this reason that many students dream of studying at one of them.
But why are U.S. universities so successful? This is due to three aspects in particular: the high level of the educational system; the multitude of careers they offer and the number of advantages offered to students who study in them.
The Center for World University Rankings (CWUR) has released its ranking of the top 10 universities in the United States. CWUR is a consulting organization that provides policy advice, strategic insights and consulting services to governments and universities to improve educational and research outcomes.
These are, according to CWUR, the best universities in the United States:
1. Harvard University (Massachusetts): its educational quality, its research results and the recognition of its graduates worldwide are some of the aspects that lead this university to occupy the first position. This center has high academic standards and also has the largest library complex in the world.
2. Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT (Massachusetts): is considered one of the best universities in the world in the field of science, technology and engineering.
3. Stanford University (California): this university stands out for its focus on the creation and development of start-ups. Companies such as Google, HP and Yahoo originated here.
4. Princenton University (New Jersey): it has a high educational quality. In addition, the student/professor ratio is low and it has a high level of employability.
More and more Spanish students want to travel to the United States to pursue their university studies. However, it is necessary to fulfill a series of requirements to be able to access some of these universities:
-Certificate of education: this is a document that certifies that the student has the studies of Bachillerato. In the most demanding universities, the grades obtained are also taken into account.
-Good level of English: it is a fundamental requirement since the universities ask for a test that accredits the good knowledge and command of the language. The great majority of the universities ask to pass the TOELF certificate, others consider other accreditations valid or have their own tests.
-Admission tests: Most U.S. universities require the results of standardized admission tests in the United States. These tests usually consist of multiple-choice aptitude tests that assess the skills required for the studies applied for. All students, both from the U.S. and from other countries, must take these tests.
-Obtaining a student visa: it is absolutely essential to be able to reside in the United States while pursuing university studies.
Studying at an American university is a highly valued option among the students of Casvi International American School. For this reason, we offer them the necessary tools so that they can face it in the best possible way. The International Baccalaureate methodology prepares them to face this challenge both educationally and personally. Also, thanks to the linguistic immersion they experience (the language of instruction is English), they will not have any problems when it comes to passing the language tests and being able to study the career of their choice without a language barrier.
In addition, Grupo Educativo Casvi’s schools organize the International Consultants Fair, which is attended by a wide variety of university consultants who inform our students about everything related to studying in the United States.
